Water is life! Where you find water you often find huge diversity of species. Waterside habitats are diverse and wonderful. The delicate balance of environment and biodiversity helps sustain life on earth, so we get involved at all levels - from regional partnerships, down to supporting grassroots community action to help restore and preserve wildlife habitats.
