It’s been suggested we contact friends of upper wye about there citizen science programme and relationship with NRW. This is their reply…

“Oh my goodness, solidarity! Welcome to the struggle. We have had the most unbelievably frustrating/appalling/disheartening experience with NRW. We started setting up our citizen science project on the River Wye in 2020, and co-designed it through a rigorous process with Cardiff University (with NRW and EA input). We have been operational with over 100 citizen scientists since 2021. NRW are still ‘considering’ how/whether to use our data. Whereas on the English side, the EA reference our data in their reports and are far more proactive (not perfect, and could do better, but much better than NRW). ”
