Thames River Watch gives Londoners a way to protect and monitor the health of the river Thames. We do this by training volunteers as citizen scientists to collect data on the types of plastic litter in the river and to monitor and communicate water quality issues.
With Westcountry CSI (Citizen Science Investigations), Westcountry Rivers Trust is giving citizen scientists the tools needed to detect signs of healthy (or unhealthy) rivers and streams.
MoRPh is a national citizen science survey tool for monitoring the physical quality of river channels and their margins, developed by Queen Mary University of London in partnership with the Environment Agency.
How many of these much-loved animals are there? Where and how do they live? Will they survive? These are the questions being addressed by a partnership led by The Royal Parks with scientists, local organisations, and a large number of trained volunteers.
