Pond Conservation

Charity no.:1107708

Pond Conservation provides a national focus for ponds. It is unique in
the UK in undertaking pond research that is directly applied to
practical conservation projects.

Activities and services:

  • Providing pond conservation information and advice for freshwater conservation to individuals and voluntary groups.
  • Contributing expertise and advice on ponds and pond-life to local, regional, national and European government and other statutory bodies.
  • Supporting the National Ponds Monitoring Network.
  • The creation (and restoration) of new clean water ponds (mainly) through the Million Ponds
    Project. This is currently active in England and Wales but there are
    plans to bring it to Northern Ireland and Scotland as soon as funding
    can be secured.
  • Advising the public with help for garden ponds, including the garden pond blog and the garden pond survey, to help research in this area.

Geographic coverage:

Across the UK and supporting research work in Europe.
