Dr Dylan Bright

The world is a hugely poorer place after the recent death of Dr Dylan Bright, formerly Director of Westcountry Rivers Trust.

Dylan was in the vanguard of the rivers trust movement, a pioneer for the principles of paid ecosystems services or natural capital and a fervent advocate for the health of our rivers and their catchments. Dylan possessed an awesome intellect but a self-effacing nature and a gentle capacity to put anyone at ease. I remember his humour and infectious laugh with great fondness. Many, many people are mourning Dylan’s loss, testament to what he achieved in our watery world and the breadth of his friendships. A rare fish – we’ll not see Dylan’s like again.

Deepest condolences from all at WTT to Dylan’s family and friends.
