Wildfowl-and-Wetlands-Trust

Wetlands are vital to ALL life on earth and are, literally, the lifeblood of our planet. WWT was established in 1946 by the naturalist and artist Sir Peter Scott (1909 – 1989). His lifelong aim was to conserve wetlands and their wildlife for future generations to enjoy. The impact of the decline of wetlands and its effects on wetland birds and other wildlife remains a major focus of WWT's work as it aims to
  • Raise awareness of the importance of wetlands
  • Promote action to save wetlands
  • Reverse the trend of wetland loss
  • Safeguard wetland biodiversity

Unfortunately, wetlands are threatened as never before because they are :-
  • Reclaimed for building and agriculture
  • Polluted and degraded
  • The first casualty of human development

These threats grow year on year and time is running out. WWT is dependent on the generosity of individual donors and regular, pre-tax donations from your salary will help ensure the survival of wetlands for generations to come.
