On 10 November, WWT will be 75 years old. You are invited to join our 75-day countdown to this special birthday by sharing your memories and stories with us.
All through our countdown we will be looking back to the very beginning and our remarkable founder, Sir Peter Scott. We’ll be looking forward too – with the passion of staff, volunteers and supporters, WWT has become a leading international conservation charity. We want to see a world where healthy wetland nature thrives and enriches the lives of everyone, now and into the future.
Find out what we’re planning next, as we focus on creating larger and more connected nature-rich wetlands to help combat the biodiversity, climate and mental health crises facing us all today.
We’re inviting you to share your memories of wetlands, and the people and experiences that inspired them. From a childhood trip pond-dipping to global adventures, send us your story, art, poem, or photos for the chance to be featured on our channels.
