Essex Wildlife Trust was awarded funding from Natural England in early 2015 to digitise Essex coastal data for the Blackwater and Colne Estuary, collected by the National Rivers Authority in the early 1990s. This is part of our ongoing partnership work with Natural England and the Environment Agency.

The Blackwater Estuary in Essex is home to an important population of native oysters. Essex Wildlfie Trust's Living Seas Officer, Sarah Allison, has been working with Essex University students and the Blackwater Oystermen to research the native oyster population and the Estuary habitat that they rely on.
