Chalkstreams are an exceptional type of spring-fed river, distinct to England and parts of France and Denmark. The English chalk downland gives rise to 283 distinct chalkstreams as well as dozens of small, nameless rills and becks, comprising most of this river type to be found anywhere in the world.
These chalkstreams are our equivalent to the Great Barrier Reef or the Okavango: a truly special natural heritage and a responsibility. The challenge we have ahead of us is to leave our wonderful chalkstreams in a better state than we found them.
Nick will cover the diversity and magic of chalk streams, what is putting them under pressure and what Salmon and Trout Conservation are trying to do about it.
