Join for life

Protecting vanishing species and regenerating fragile wetlands often means changing hearts and minds. This doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a lifetime’s work.

How you’ll be helping

With water voles emerging to establish their nesting territories, clumps of toad and frogspawn appearing in ponds and lakes and spring colour, spring is one of the most promising times of year to begin a lifetime of support for WWT.

Crucially, the unswerving support of life members allows us to plan and commit to essential conservation work for wetland habitats and species most at risk. With freshwater wetlands only covering 1% of the earth’s surface but 40% of species relying on them, we cannot underestimate the scale of work and time needed to ensure the survival of these life support systems.

49 pairs of red-listed breeding black-tailed godwits were recorded across the fens in 2020, another increase
