In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that all FreshWater Watchers ensure that they are following the latest advice in their region regarding self-isolation, social distancing and movement. If local restrictions mean that you are not able to take part in FreshWater Watch activities, please postpone them for as long as necessary – your safety and wellbeing are our priority. Please keep abreast of government advice as this is changing frequently.
It has never been so important to protect our freshwater resources.
Nearly all freshwater environments are impacted by man-made pollutants and by 2050 nearly half of the world's population will be living in areas where water is scarce.
We created FreshWater Watch so that everyone across the globe can monitor the health of the lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands and reservoirs upon which we all depend.
