Protecting Our Waterways Endangered Species 2016-05-17 08:28:53
The objective is to increase the range, and improve the conservation of, endangered or rare aquatic species across the region. By promoting and increasing awareness of the techniques, procedures and systems tested in the project, a greater uptake of these should be achieved. It is expected that organisations and stakeholders with responsibilities and services that impact on eco systems will be persuaded or eventually obliged to adopt such best practice methods - thus helping sustain and increase protection of endangered species.

The project aims to deliver a measurable increase in the range and population size of rare or endangered species on or adjacent to inland waterways. An effective campaign would deliver far wider coverage than just the project partners’ waterways and would increase growth and preservation in many more sites and areas across the Region.

Impacts should be incremental as (1) techniques become more established and physically robust and (2) organisations/stakeholders are ‘sold’ on the environmental and economic benefits such improvements are expected to deliver. Involvement of communities can help organisations complete works by providing manpower and contribute to other economic and social outcomes - this is ‘added value’ that the project also aims to deliver.

Some organisations may choose to adopt only some of the techniques, procedures and systems developed - but any take up, however small will contribute to the projects results and impact.
