30-07-2013 : TECHNOLOGY HELPS CANAL WILDLIFE

Canal Boat Holiday guests cruising the canals and rivers can use the latest technology to help the wildlife.

Following a national report earlier this year stating that 3,000 animal and plant species have declined in the UK in the past 50 years, the Canal and River Trust are launching the Great Nature Watch which is a campaign to get members of the public to help to protect 2,000 miles of waterway habitats.

By using a free app called enaturewatch, or online via their website, visitors will be asked a series of questions which will help paint the picture of a cross section of canal or river habitat being surveyed.

Peter Birch, Head of Environment, says Our ultimate aim is to ensure there are plenty of habitats for wildlife to move up and down our waterway corridors, through city centres, as well as remote parts of the countryside.

We are hoping Great Nature Watch can support the great environmental progress we have made over the years.

People power can make a big difference so we hope visitors to our canals or rivers will get round as much of our waterway network as possible and help create a living map.

Whilst out on the towpath, budding environment enthusiasts and families will be able to learn about what they see through a Spotters Guide, a section of the app designed to teach people about the wildlife, plants and trees that can be found on the towpath.
