Please Help This Project...

Here is a link to a Kickstarter Project that the world needs not just the UK.  The most amazing wildlife has been filmed all over the world and yet here in the UK we have species that have hardly ever been filmed and some that have never been filmed.  Why?  Well, simply put, they are out of sight and therefore out of mind.  And why is that?  It's because they are FISH.

Remember some of my feeble attempts to video fish in their habitat with a hand-held, waterproof, point and shoot camera set on video?

Well Jack Perks is a real master at underwater filming of fish in their natural habitat (not tanks) and you can rely on him to make a perfect job.  His project has the potential to do a great deal of good.  Especially when we try to persuade those who rule over us to consider the needs of fish when making decisions about weirs, hydro-power, sewage treatment, abstraction, land use, pollution, flood "prevention" et al.  It doesn't cost a lot to make this project happen.  Please have a look and pledge what you can.  Every contribution helps and yours might be the very one that triggered the project's coming to life.

Thank you.
