ICES Annual Science Conference 2024

Northumberland WADER Project

Join this excursion to experience some of the demonstration activities and nature-based solutions that are being implemented as a result of the research that has taken place.

Friday 13 September

The WADER project uses a Catchment to Coast approach to investigate causes impacting on water bodies in six internationally important Natura 2000 sites. This five-year project is working to improve river, intertidal and marine habitats and the species that depend on them. The project area covers the stunning Northumberland Coast and the cross-border Tweed catchment between England and Scotland.
