Giving Tuesday

This global event began in 2012 and has gone on to inspire people worldwide to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

This year, on Giving Tuesday, we are asking you to help us out in a way that suits you.

That could be with your time, an affordable donation or even a sustainable purchase.


Our volunteers are doing a tremendous job of gathering the data we need to inform our work. It helps us to understand where the biggest pressures on our freshwater habitats are coming from in the region, and determine how and where we could step in.

Watch our Westcountry Citizen Science film to find out if taking part could be for you. Giving your time is priceless, and hugely appreciated by our charity.
