S&TC VICE PRESIDENTS

Our Vice Presidents are champions for our work who share our aims and will add their own unique influence to our campaigning.

Prue Leith -high res
While it’s an honour to be appointed vice president of an organisation I’ve supported for nigh-on two decades I’m under no illusions. I take on this role at a critical time for our magnificent but oh-so-vulnerable salmonids and the waters they inhabit. 

The sudden and seismic changes that we see in our political and environmental landscapes are like discovering a river for the first time but in full spate;  you have to wait a while before its true path becomes clear. 

Well make no mistake, we are already wader-deep into that river and it’s still very muddied. We have yet to see what government assurances on the environment, now no longer under EU scrutiny, will amount to and of course there’s a good chance the river looks dirty because of sewage. 

Looking out to sea, while there’s been much to celebrate on issues like netting, poorly-positioned salmon farms remain a major concern as we try to understand why wild salmon and sea trout numbers have crashed 70% in two decades. Above all else salmon, trout and grayling depend upon a clean environment for survival. Along with my colleagues at Salmon and Trout Conservation UK I’m determined to make sure they get it.
