Our magazine is printed on FSC accredited paper from responsible sources and can be recycled. It is also delivered in a potato-starch compostable wrap.

Advertising: currently advertising is necessary to help cover the cost of producing the magazine, so more money can go towards our conservation work. We take care to continually review the advertisements Waterlife carries, and have recently decided to stop advertising travel agencies which involve air travel in line with our wider organisational values to promote sustainable travel as much as possible.

What's in the latest issue

This issue of Waterlife has a new look. All your favourite sections are still here, but we’ve given the magazine a bright, fresh and clear redesign. We hope you like it – please let us know what you think at waterlife@wwt.org.uk.

In this issue, we continue our series of features exploring how wetlands can help tackle environmental issues. As the risk of flooding in the UK increases, due to climate change and the management of the landscape, we explore how restoring natural features such as farm ponds and river bends can help (page 30).

Step back in time to discover the vast, wild wetlands that once covered the UK, and the exciting wildlife, from moose to eagles, that lived there. Some species are starting to return, and we reveal exciting plans to welcome one lost bird – the Dalmatian pelican – to some of our centres on page 22.

Winter issue: Nov 2020 - Feb 2021
