The health of the River Thame is impacted by factors far beyond its river banks.

For this reason, we believe wholeheartedly in the Catchment Based Approach, which aims to tackle problems facing the freshwater environment at a catchment scale by bringing together numerous organisations to collaboratively deliver benefits for nature.

River Thame Catchment

Catchment Partnerships are active around England and Wales, made up of environmental NGOs, water companies, local authorities, government agencies, landowners, angling clubs, farmer representative bodies, academia and local businesses.

Their local knowledge and expertise is crucial in developing and delivering an aim and vision for their local river catchment. We jointly host the Thame Catchment Partnership with Freshwater Habitats Trust which was established in 2017.

As well as working towards locally specific targets agreed by the Catchment Partnership, the Partnership contributes to the delivery of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) objectives.

Through its engagement and delivery work, the Thame Catchment Partnership is also an important delivery partner for the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan. To learn more about the Thame Catchment Partnership including who is involved, our aims, and our actions, explore the Thame Catchment Plan. In this interactive StoryMap, you can learn more about the Thame catchment, the problems it faces, and the partnership’s solutions for delivering improvements.
