Ponds and streams make vital wetland homes. Yet, we’ve lost around 50% of our ponds in the last century. And more than a third of the world’s wetlands were lost between 1970 and 2015.
Wetlands, ponds, and the wildlife that thrives in them need your help. Creating a pond or mini-wetland is one of the most important things you can do for wildlife in your garden.
Take action today to help us reverse the decline of wetlands. You can pledge to make a difference at home with a pond or mini-wetland, or you can make a change to help wetlands across the UK.
Ponds, streams and even your drainpipe can all be vital wetland homes. They’re an easy and inexpensive way to bring benefits to you, your community and local wildlife. Here are four ways you can help wetlands:
We’re saving the world’s rarest duck in Madagascar and supporting the spoon-billed sandpipers of East-Asia by protecting their wetland habitat. We’ve also created one of the UK’s largest new wetland reserves at Steart in Somerset.
This is all possible thanks to the support of people like you. We can do so much more:
Together we will bring wetlands back to life.
