The Westcountry Rivers Trust is recruiting three Trustees. Formed in 1994, the Trust was established to restore Westcountry rivers by undertaking measures that protect river and their flora and fauna but also help save money for farmers, improve fisheries, lower costs for water companies, boost tourism, reduce the need to dredge estuaries and even benefit human health. Everything we do is informed by the best available science and our work is driven by an ‘ecosystems approach,’ which considers the function of the entire catchment, not just the rivers that flow within them
Today we work with a wide range of stakeholders from landowners to local communities, businesses, farmers and water companies to restore and protect the rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal areas for the benefit of people, wildlife and the local economy. Following a recent Governance review we are looking to re-shape the Board and are seeking to appoint people with a passion for our environment who can offer expertise in the areas of finance, HR and marketing.
