Save migratory fish in rivers

The world’s migratory fish are in an enormous decline, with human development and infrastructure, like dams and weirs, blocking critical migratory pathways. We want to turn the tide and save these migratory fish, connect a global movement of practitioners and open up the swimways of the world together.

To support this process we recently started the Global Swimway Initiative, together with IUCN and the Cambridge Conservation Initiative. We have defined swimways as pathways fish dependably migrate along. In honour of World Fish Migration Day, we are hosting a special 24 hour webinar marathon!

In this webinar, global leaders on this issue will tell us about global swimways, fish species population status and trends. Practitioners and experts from each continent will share best practices about what is going well and inspire us all to take action! The webinar is meant for people all over the globe who are, or want to be, active and passionate about rivers, fish and nature.

We are eager to connect with you on this, thinking global, acting local. This will be the world’s first Global Swimways Webinar Marathon, a 24-hour celebration of connecting and sharing inspiring knowledge about rivers, migratory fish, river connectivity and smart solutions to bend the curve. The webinars include presentations from over 50 local, national and global experts. We have space for 500 attendees per session.

The webinar sessions are hosted by time zones and continent. In total, we will host 9 sessions lasting 1-2 hours each.
