Spawn to be Wild
Our legendary schools programme to bring eels back to our waters has won several awards, and we are very proud of it. It's leading the industry and putting children in touch with the story of the endangered eel.
More endangered than the red panda
Watch this video to find out about Spawn to be Wild and how we try to save this fascinating creature.
What are we doing to save them?
Baby European eels, known as Larva, travel on oceanic currents from the Sargasso Sea to Europe, including right here in the West Country. Here, the baby eels transform into elvers.
Our Spawn to be Wild scheme protects them from environmental threats by taking them for a pit-stop in local schools for several weeks.
This gives children a chance to connect with the story of the endangered eel in a unique way, while helping the elvers to grow in a safe environment, a true win-win.
