'Thames Revival' on BBC Radio

Having been declared biologically dead in 1957, the river Thames has been making a real comeback. As well as porpoises, seals and the odd whale, over 156 species of fish currently live there.

The latest episode of 'Costing the Earth' talks about the monitoring and restoration work that has taken place. We are proud that many of the organisations featured are partners. They discuss the current status of the Thames, and what the future holds.
