Rivers are globally important for wildlife, supporting rich and varied animal and plant communities with a wide variety of shelter, breeding and feeding opportunities. The dynamics of a river are determined by the underlying geology that supports it. In East Anglia we are blessed with a number of chalk streams that support unique wildlife and provide crystal clear waters. Rivers are associated with many habitat types.
