“It’s important to monitor our rivers; they are such a vital habitat but vulnerable to pollution. I learn from taking part and feel I’m making a difference while seeing things I might otherwise miss.”
Our Westcountry CSI aims are:
- To educate and engage people with the water environment.
- To produce data that can be used to target work and identify degrading water bodies.
- To spot pollution events which can be dealt with as quickly as possible.
- To create a network of catchment communities that are invested in their local environment
Hi, I’m Anna.
I’m part of the team looking after our fabulous community of #WestcountryCSI citizen science volunteers. They make a valuable contribution to our work to protect and restore the region’s freshwater environments.
We hope you’ll want to take part too. Email us via [email protected] if you have any questions.

Find out about our Westcountry CSI scheme via our interactive manual .
It explains how to safely take freshwater samples and includes resources for you to learn about your river, plus much more.
When you support our work as a Westcountry CSI volunteer, you will be helping to look after our region’s rivers, their habitats and wildlife, and our water resource.
You can monitor your river for a variety of reasons such as problem plants to pollution.
