About the TEER

 

The TEER was established in 2008 and is a partnership between agencies responsible for the management of the Tamar Estuary and Esk Rivers waterways. The TEER Program provides a coordinated approach to manage and guide investment to protect, maintain and enhance the Tamar Estuary and Esk Rivers systems from ‘catchment to coast’.

A key goal of the Program is to improve our scientific understanding of the issues impacting the condition of the TEER waterways, so we can better target priority areas for investment in on-ground works.

The TEER Program collaborates with partners through two formal committees and several working groups.

1. Strategy and Partnerships Committee (SPC) is responsible for the management and direction of TEER and includes representatives from:
