Join ZSL for a Science and Conservation Event about Thames wildlife.

Estuaries are one of the world’s most productive ecosystems but their biological value is often over looked. Due to their complexity, they remain poorly understood and are rarely recognised for their importance for wildlife. The historical dependency of man on estuaries has largely resulted in them becoming environmentally impoverished. The Thames, however, is seen as a global success story of a recovering urban estuary. Find out more about how far the Thames has come since being declared ‘biologically dead’ in 1958 and learn about some of the species that live in the estuary and how they use it.
