Spawn to be Wild is an award-winning schools project, funded by Bristol Water. Children in primary schools have the opportunity to rear young eels (elvers) in their classrooms with a whole programme of curriculum-linked learning activities all based around this fascinating animal. It started in 2014 and is now in its fourth successful year.
Children from five schools across Avon carefully nurture the elvers over a five-week period before releasing them into an ideal eel river or lake, where they will live until they return to sea to spawn.
While the elvers grow, the children learn about the eels’ fascinating lives, the challenges they have to overcome to make it up our rivers and what they, and all their classmates, can do to help save them.
