These projects are the means by which the Wye & Usk Foundation delivers its objectives.
The overriding aim is to restore or improve the ecology of the two rivers and their fisheries. We do this in a way that also provides maximum biodiversity gains, benefits the rural economy and educates people in the management and importance of these ecosystems.
The typical format is a partnership of organisations concerned with the particular activity in which each project is actively engaging. In some cases the Foundation is the lead, in others we have been invited to join projects sponsored by another organisation. This enables financial resources and skills to be brought together, to both increase spending power and to extend the range of activities undertaken.
