South Cumbria Rivers Trust are currently working up a project that will require help from volunteers taking water samples around Arnside, Cumbria.
The WAMM project (Wholescale Approach to Marine Management) is a new 16 month project funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). The aim of the project is to support a collaborative approach to the management of estuarine and coastal waters in and around Morecambe Bay (chosen as the primary pilot location).
The three Catchment Based Approach Partnerships (CaBA); South Cumbria, Wyre and Lune Rivers Trusts and the Morecambe Bay Coastal Partnership are beginning a programme of working, with focus upon plastics and their presence within the coastal and estuarine environment. Other focus areas will be included along the way, dependent on organisational factors.
We hope this approach between Coastal and CaBA partnerships and will build knowledge and expertise across a range of issues.
