The scale, ambition and achievements of the Unlocking the Severn project has gained the interest of the media on many occasions. We are thrilled to have heard the story of the shad told on TV, in newspapers and magazines, and even on podcasts!
News features were a great way for us to share updates throughout the building of the fish passes, provide more information about the incredible scientific monitoring studies done during the project, and invite people to come and visit our amazing visitor sites at Diglis Island & Fish Pass. However, perhaps most crucially, they allowed us to bring the underwater world of the River Severn to the surface, educate people about the importance of our longest river and its wildlife, and share the successes of a huge conservation story with lots of people.
You can read some of our news highlights, and watch some of our TV features below.
