Working with the WFMF team is truly inspiring. These are clever, supremely creative people who apply a positive “can do" attitude to management and problem solving, big and small. A rare mix of skilled young professionals who are passionate about communicating science and the natural world. Their commitment to river restoration, and to migratory fish in particular, is exemplary and has won them international praise, awards and recognition.
