How we're protecting rivers from climate change and flooding 

In what is the first project of its kind in the UK, we're restoring the tributary of the river Aller, which flows through the Holnicote Estate in Exmoor, Dorset. The groundbreaking approach, carried out in partnership with the Environment Agency and the European project Interreg 2 Seas Co-Adapt, will help protect the river from climate change and flooding, as well as create more space for wildlife.

Nature needs us all 

As the UK government progresses the new Environment Bill, the Trust is calling for environmental measures to secure the future of our much-loved wildlife, parks and landscapes.
