To help support BIAZA's fundraising efforts for The Wildlife Trusts, BIAZA Corporate Member and Director of Zootech Jay Rooney, has kindly pledged to contribute 40 pence per square metre of Bentomat purchased by BIAZA members in 2015, to the Godmanchester Reserve fundraising campaign.

Bentomat Geo-Synthetic Clay Liner is widely used in decorative lakes, garden ponds, wetlands, reed beds, lagoons, aquaponics & fisheries, as well as on more industrial applications. Consisting of a layer of bentonite clay encapsulated between two textile layers, Bentomat is a self-healing, self-seaming liner that requires very little maintenance. Because it does not require specialised welding equipment or labour, it can be installed with minimal instruction or supervision & at a lower cost than many other liners.  Bentomat is already in use by a number of BIAZA members and indeed Wildlife Trusts. 

We would encourage any BIAZA members who are looking to develop new pond or wetland areas on site to consider the possibility of the use of Bentomat to support our fundraising efforts!

For more information contact Jay Rooney ([email protected]) or visit the Bentomat website.
