How we are making a difference

The Thames Catchment Community Eels Project needs your help

Every year glass eels arrive from the Sargasso Sea and swim up the Thames, however that journey is hindered by the many barriers on the river. The Thames Catchment Community Eels Project is looking for volunteers to be part of the citizen science Eel Force monitoring of glass eel migration and barrier surveying.

Find out how you can get involved and how the project will help this critically endangered fish.
