Nature and wildlife

Visit our waterways and you could spot anything from ducks and dragonflies to kingfishers and water voles. Even in the heart of our most built up cities you can get back to nature by visiting one of our canals or rivers, which is one of the reasons a trip to our waterways can make you happier and healthier.

Our environment team are always looking for opportunities to encourage our waterway wildlife to thrive, preserving habitats and creating new ones. We believe it’s important for everyone’s wellbeing to have somewhere where they can access free open spaces and get close to wildlife no matter where they live. Find out more about their work.
