Unlocking the Severn for people and wildlife – Virtual Talk
*This webinar is now sold out. We hope to make a recording available after the event- please follow Unlocking the Severn on social media (@SevernUnlocked) to be updated when this is available*
Join us for the first talk in our Severn Series, a collection of online webinars exploring the life beneath the surface of the UK’s longest river.
The River Severn is a watery highway, an important part in the lifecycle of many migratory fish, including the rare twaite shad. Hundreds of thousands of twaite shad used to migrate up the Severn each spring but weirs built in the 1840’s blocked this annual journey.
In this virtual talk we will be sharing how Unlocking the Severn, a once-in-a-lifetime conservation and river engagement project, is using modern engineering to reopen the UK’s longest river for shad and other endangered species, how we are connecting communities with their river and how you can be involved.
This free talk will be hosted on Zoom and will be interpreted by a British Sign Language interpreter.
Joining details will be sent out to registered participants in advance using the email address provided. The talk will be tailored to adults but is also suitable for older children, who should be supervised during the event.
