Yellow Fish in Felixstowe, Lowestoft, and Woodbridge

Groundwork Suffolk and East Suffolk Councils are working together on behalf of the Greenprint Forum to engage the community and inspire awareness of the local natural heritage of the Rivers Orwell, Deben and Waveney.

The Yellow Fish project, launched in January 2019, is providing information and practical advice to residents, businesses, and schools in Woodbridge, Felixstowe, and Lowestoft on the existence and status of local waterway habitats and the indigenous species that depend upon them. Information will also be provided on how local human behaviour is threatening their existence through litter pollution and plastic waste.

A series of events, workshops, and sessions with businesses, community organisations and schools will be taking place in the three towns. The project has a clear message of ‘Only Rain Down The Drain!’ This is supported by public drains being marked with a yellow fish symbol as a reminder that all litter or pollution entering the system can cause direct contamination of our rivers and streams. Together we can make a difference!
