Why we need your support
Tyne Rivers Trust has a unique role as guardian of the River Tyne, its tributaries and its catchment. The Tyne catchment is uniquely beautiful. It is home to many scientifically important species and sites, including the freshwater pearl mussel and Calaminarian grasslands, as well as being the best salmon fishing river in England and Wales.
We strive to ensure that the river continues its recovery from the impact of its industrial past, and there is plenty still to do.
Our programmes identify and address specific issues :
Practical conservation work
- identifying, reporting and solving pollution issues
- advising land and forestry managers on best practice to protect rivers
- addressing man-made sources of silt and erosion
- improving fish passage over obstructions
- tackling the impacts of metal mining
- mapping and managing invasive species
Education and empowerment:
- education programmes for young and adults alike
- raising awareness of biosecurity
- monitoring programmes for water quality and temperature
- training in ‘riverfly’ invertebrate surveys
- influencing decisions and policy which affect our Tyne
As a charity, we can only achieve this with money and support from others.
