Nature and wildlife

Along our canals and rivers is an enormous range of trees, plants, mammals, fish and other forms of life. By helping nature to flourish, we're ensuring our waterways stay in good health, now and in the future.

Our environment team are always looking for opportunities to encourage our waterway wildlife to thrive, by protecting habitats and creating new ones.

Nature is also important for people to thrive. Being outdoors and getting close to nature and wildlife helps improve our wellbeing. We believe everyone should have access to this, no matter where they live.
