This summer, the team at the MGET signed up to an exciting project – a film about the work we are doing in the Mersey estuary.

If you have been following us for a while, you know that the MGET is carrying out some important environmental monitoring around the Mersey Gateway bridge. This work includes the monitoring of water quality, hydrodynamics and aquatic and terrestrial ecology.

Alison Hitchens, has produced a 10 minute film (see video below) that introduces you to the world of the Mersey Gateway Environmental Trust and the team of ecological consultants of AECOM, who we are working with.

The film – Making Room for Nature – looks at how the team collect samples, what they tell us and why we are doing this work in the first place. It shows some extraordinary angles that have not been captured on camera before, including some great wildlife.

We are very proud to have been part of this project and hope you will enjoy the film as much as we do. Leave us some feedback on social media (@mgenvtrust) and make sure you follow the MGET and Alison Hitchens (@AlisonHitchens) for more exciting nature news.
