Our impact

We work with our member Trusts to make our shared vision a reality: wild, healthy, natural rivers, valued by all. This page summarises everything our movement has achieved so far to bring that vision to life.

The Rivers Trust Review is a roundup of everything our movement accomplished over the course of the year

We couldn't be prouder of everything our local Trusts achieved, despite all of the roadblocks which persisted throughout 2021. With your help, we can achieve even more next year.

  • Eel-y good citizen science: Thames Rivers Trust lead a partnership of Rivers Trusts to map obstacles to eel migration
  • River restoration: River Nene Regional Park have carried out an impressive scheme of work to nurse the Nene back to life
  • Fish passage: Severn Rivers Trust played an important role in Unlocking the Severn - and we're particularly excited by the Diglis Fish Pass!
