Pupils of Kells & Connor and Moorfields Primaries are finding out how pollution can impact on their local environment.

Kells Connor and Glenwherry Angling Club members joined the children recently as they worked on their Living Rivers Project carrying out kick samples in Connor Burn.

This was done to identify the different insects found in the river which will give the Club and the children the information needed to determine if streams flowing into local rivers are polluted or in need of habitat works to improve water quality.

The children also released some Dollaghan fry into the river for restocking and will be carrying out kick samples over the next few months as part of their projects on pollution and the environment

The project, which is funded by NIEA Challenge fund and Kells Connor & Glenwherry Angling Club, is designed to give children a better understanding of environmental pollution.
