Have fun using our augmented reality app looking for animals at the River Ribble!
The Ribble Life Partnership was originally created in 2011 as part of a Defra funded pilot scheme driven by the EU’s Water Framework Directive. The pilot scheme aimed to engage people from local communities, farmers, public sector organisations and local businesses to help improve water quality at a local, catchment level. This is known as the catchment-based approach (CaBA) which the Ribble Life Partnership adopted for the long-term in 2013. In 2015 the Partnership were awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop it’s first project- the Ribble Life Together project.
The Ribble Life Partnership is made up of over 20 different organisations, including United Utilities, Environment Agency, RSPB, Forest of Bowland AONB, Forestry Commission, Natural England, Woodland Trust, Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, NFU, RFCA as well as local councils and a number of community groups.
