Removing “Road Dams” in Europe – Webinar

Culvert - a river runs trhough it - fish don't
 

The World Fish Migration Foundation, The United States Forest Service, and The Nature Conservancy invite you to join us for a 3 hour, international webinar highlighting the need and opportunities to improve road and stream crossings to enhance the biodiversity of rivers across Europe! 

January 19th, 2022 from 15:00-18:00 Central European Time (CET)

Dams and weirs get much needed attention, but river fragmenting culverts and road crossings are more common and often overlooked. These structures have an outsized impact on critical headwater rivers and streams. It’s time to shed light on this critical issue!

¡Libertad para el río salmonero Kemijoki!
 

Un activista finés, el profesor Vesa Puuronen tiene que pagar compensaciones a una corporación hidroeléctrica “Kemijoki Oy” por “dañar una presa” con pinturas de salmones. Las presas sin escalas para peces han eliminado la población local de salmones.
