Projecte Rius: joining people and rivers, Catalonia

Projecte Rius provides an opportunity for people to get outdoors, and be involved in the evaluation of their local aquatic ecosystems. Over the last 17 years, Projecte Ruis has been enabling 1000 people annually to get involved in monitoring their local river in Catalonia, highlighting areas for habitat improvement, invasive species removal, replanting of native species, clearance of overgrown trails and recognising pollution and discharge issues. The volunteers are supported to take action at a local and national level where necessary to improve the habitats they are monitoring. The project will maintain at least 150 volunteer groups, strengthening Projecte Ruis in Catalonia and covering analysis and monitoring around 75km of river. Three more significant restoration projects will be undertaken as part of this project.

We are hugely grateful for the support of the European Outdoor Conservation Association, without whose support we could never have realised such an ambitious project.
