The Mersey Gateway Environmental Trust is unique.

We provide innovative environmental management within the Upper Mersey Estuary and surrounding natural green spaces, protecting and improving this special area for the benefit of wildlife and people.

Our vision

MGET offers a new approach to the Upper Mersey Estuary, with innovative ecological management for people and wildlife to enjoy this special landscape for generations to come.

Our work

Our work is mainly based around the Upper Mersey Estuary – a tidal environment which has a rich industrial legacy, but also wonderful habitats that benefit from our protection and conservation.

Our projects

We are continuously working on new ideas with our stakeholders and partners in areas such as citizen science, eDNA and habitat creation.

We are a Living Laboratory

We have created and oversee a thriving and internationally-renowned living laboratory in the Upper Mersey Estuary – undertaking a diverse array of research projects and making long-term monitoring data available to researchers and others for the benefit of the environment, economy, local people and wildlife.
