DCRT have been using their Don Network Grant in the Rother sub-catchment to improve Neverfear dam and weir. A partial collapse of the weir meant that water no longer flows into the goit, putting the dam at risk of drying up. DCRT are redirecting water to the goit and planting the dam with aquatic species to improve it as a habitat.
Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust used their Don Network Grant to match fund the Nature Counts: Otterly Amazing project. They purchased 10 wildlife trail cameras and security boxes for recording otters in the middle Don sub-catchment. See footage from one of the cameras below!
