River Talks

Get Involved

Join us on river adventures…

Hear from biologist, conservationist, science communicator, Rivers Trust Ambassador and our volunteer vlogger Emily Hardisty on a river walk and talk in Cornwall.

Learn about her thoughts on interconnected ecosystems along the riverbank and in the rivers.

We hope this will be the first of many River Talks with Emily, but when she’s not doing ‘river dips’ you can also find her creating Nature Trail videos on YouTube or filming with Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

As well as her volunteering and wildlife vlogging, Emily is studying for a masters (MRes) in Marine Biology at Plymouth University and the Marine Biological
Association (MBA).

She also has a BSc (hons) in Applied Zoology, FdSc degree in Marine Science and is also qualified as an MMO (Marine Mammal Observer).

Emily has had conservation and scientific articles published in the Marine Biologist Magazine, in association with the MBA, and  is a PADI Open Water diver.

I’m very excited to help spread the word about the importance of river habitats and river health. 
As a biologist, I am passionate about ecosystem health, and my awe for river habitats continues to grow each day.
I’m keen to conserve and protect them as much as I can.
