Nature and wildlife

We’re keeping 2,000 miles of canals and rivers open, so you have somewhere to exercise and relax while following advice to keep your distance.

Plastic and harmful waste harms wildlife and our environment

Did you know?

Every hour enough plastic to fill two bin bags is washed into our oceans from canals and rivers.

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.
