 Riverfly Monitoring Initiative for the River Cray

Thames21 and London Wildlife Trust are launching a River Monitoring Initiative for the Cray- training is provided by ZSL.

The RMI was developed by the Riverfly Partnership ( and launched nationally in 2007. It is now deployed by an estimated 1200 volunteers on over 80 catchments and 1000 sites across the UK.

The aims of the RMI are to:

• increase catchment wide monitoring

• detect pollution events and allow a more timely response to identifying sources of pollution by the Environment Agency

• help map key problem areas that inform management of the river by the catchment partnership

• develop a network of volunteers and groups that can link to other projects

• raise awareness of issues impacting the river and empower local groups to take action
