Cyril Bennett, MBE

Dr. Cyril Bennett, a pioneer of riverfly monitoring in the voluntary sector, has been awarded an MBE for his services to conservation. Cyril first became involved with riverfly monitoring in the 1980s on the Hampshire Wey; his expertise in aquatic entomology is now globally recognised. Aquatic invertebrate monitoring is carried out by volunteers across the UK, making a real contribution to river conservation. Many congratulations to Cyril from all at WTT for this genuine recognition of his life’s work.
