Wetland wildlife is under threat. Of those species that depend on inland wetlands, 30% of amphibians, freshwater reptiles and mammals, and 15% of birds are globally threatened with extinction.

Our work to save wildlife encompasses all stages from monitoring and priority setting, coordinating species conservation, investigating threats and taking action to tackle population declines.

While we focus on wildfowl and other wetland birds, we also work on mammals, invertebrates and other wetlands species.

Our conservation research and action is targeted at species that are a priority in the UK or are threatened globally.
