Project spotlight!

During the first half of 2023, European Rivers Network and their project partners removed four barriers on the Tadoire River in France. Removing these barriers opened up 24 kilometres of river, allowing species like European eel and brown trout to migrate throughout the river. Check out the timelapse of one of the removals – Buisson Weir!
