Seal on the River Thames
Tags: , , ,

Tu B’Shevat is being celebrated tomorrow Wednesday 24th January 2024, with a central focus on the environment as the day has become an arbor day for the international Jewish community.

The River Thames is the environmental artery of London and the health of the river is hugely important to all aspects of life in London and beyond. Having been declared biologically dead by the 1960s due to centuries of severe pollution caused by the surrounding urban population, by the turn of the millennium the river had made a miraculous recovery. In 2015 a set of studies into the health of the Thames made some astounding discoveries!

Peter Gray, Environment Agency Fisheries Officer, said:

“The surveys provide a valuable snap shot of what species are living in the river. This year we have seen 17 different types of fish in including a really good mix of freshwater and marine juveniles that use the estuary as a valuable nursery area.”

For those seeking an outing in London that promotes education and exposure to the wider natural ecosystem of the Thames Basin, part of which is situated in central London and is often overlooked for its environmental value, a tour with Thames RIB Experience is a great way to learn about this wonderful river which is the city’s largest open wild space!
