  • Freshwater Habitats Trust

    Freshwater Habitats Trust is a conservation charity using scientific research and practical action to safeguard freshwater habitats and their wildlife in the UK.
    Freshwaters – our ponds, streams, rivers and lakes and the animals and plants that live in them - are just about the most threatened part of the natural world.  From headwater streams down to the sea and from tiny ponds to great lakes, a shockingly large proportion of our freshwaters is damaged by pollution. 


    The Freshwater Habitats Trust wants to change this by creating networks of new ponds with the ultimate aim of getting back to the million ponds that once enriched the British landscape 100 years ago.
