Our magazine is printed on FSC accredited paper from responsible sources and can be recycled. It is also delivered in a potato-starch compostable wrap.

Advertising: currently advertising is necessary to help cover the cost of producing the magazine, so more money can go towards our conservation work. We take care to continually review the advertisements Waterlife carries, and have recently decided to stop advertising travel agencies which involve air travel in line with our wider organisational values to promote sustainable travel as much as possible.

What's in the latest issue

In this issue of Waterlife we focus on the egrets (page 20), summer migrants (page 48) and dragonflies (page 22) that visitors can see at our sites throughout the summer months. Our feature on wetlands and carbon is a timely reminder of how valuable natural habitats are in the fight against planet destroying climate change (page 40). It’s clear the protection of nature has never been more urgent. Thanks to continued support, during this difficult time period of lockdown, we were able to continue some work on our reserves and a small number of staff were caring for our animals - hear from one of our WWT heroes on page 66.
