AMBER citizen science regional event – Scotland, DamNation film screening
April 17, 2018
As part of the EU-wide series of events organised for World Fish Migration Day by the AMBER project to promote river connectivity across Europe and help understand the past and present impact of barriers on the health of our rivers, we will be hosting a screening of award-winning film DamNation:
“This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in US attitudes from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation shows how far things have moved and how quickly, from the assumption 50 years ago that dams were always a power for good, to the first successful attempt to remove a marginal dam 20 years ago on the Kennebec River”
Screening will be followed by a short presentation of the AMBER project and the work we are carrying out at the Rivers and Lochs Institute in relation to barriers.
