About WWT

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that saves wetlands, which are essential for life itself. Wetlands are the primary source of drinking water for people and wildlife. They also connect us with nature, and with ourselves, through beautiful landscapes and inspiring encounters with wildlife.WWT’s ethos starts with the simple act of feeding a duck. That innocent connection with nature is more special if you’re feeding – say - the world’s rarest goose, saved from extinction by our expert aviculturists. It’s even more special if you’re surrounded by some of the UK’s top wildlife at one of our world class reserves, carefully designed and managed so wildlife will flourish.We take this wetland expertise around the world. We rescue endangered species from the edge of extinction. We investigate what’s damaging the wetlands on which people and wildlife depend. We protect, repair and actually create exciting new wetlands for people and wildlife.We work with communities, businesses and governments to help people live sustainably alongside wetlands, benefiting from the water, food, materials, shelter, livelihoods and enjoyment a well-managed wetland can provide.WWT is one of the world’s leading science and conservation institutions in its field. But we’re unique because we never forget it all starts with the simple pleasures, like feeding a duck. And maybe a nice cup of tea.
