How you’ll be helping

It’s been 75 years since Sir Peter Scott realised his dream and started WWT on the banks of the Severn Estuary in Gloucestershire. It’s been quite a journey. We’ve saved species from extinction, restored wetlands all over the world and pioneered conservation breeding programmes. But there is still so much to do and we need you by our side for the next part of the journey.

A WWT Life Membership supports the long term, essential work we need to do to save wetland habitats and their endangered species. This can mean the difference between survival and extinction. Our watery places aren’t just vital for wildlife but for you too, we now know that spending time in wetlands can give you the feel-good benefits essential to your wellbeing.

Over half of freshwater and wetland species in the UK are declining in numbers, with 13% at risk of extinction

90% of freshwater wetland habitats have been lost or destroyed in England in the past 400 years

Spending time in blue spaces, like wetlands, may benefit your wellbeing more than being in green spaces
