But looking after these precious spaces is costly and takes many hands. That's why we're now asking for everyone's help to #ActNowForCanals to make canals blue, green and better. Together we can bring nature back to our towns and cities and deliver health, happiness and wellbeing to millions of people.
We believe that no other UK charity brings so much free, open and accessible blue and green space to the doorsteps of so many people. And we want to keep it that way.
So please #ActNowForCanals. Join us by sharing our messaging on social media, take part in citizen science projects, raise funds, or become a volunteer.
Every small action can make a huge difference.
