The island of Ireland possesses an aquatic heritage which is unique in Europe. Our abundance of rivers and streams teem with life but they are under threat from climate change, land use changes, pollution and modern life in general. In this webinar, Professor Ken Whelan will introduce you to the magical world of underwater animals and plants, highlight some the threats they face and advise on small steps all of us can take to keep our rivers and streams healthy and productive.
