Waterlife magazine

This is WWT’s flagship publication keeping members up to date with the pioneering conservation work they support, all the exciting things going on at our centres, and learning more about wetlands and wildlife.

Each issue of the magazine includes:

  • Our latest news and stories
  • In-depth features on wetland wildlife conservation and wetlands creation, restoration and protection
  • Wildlife spotter guides
  • A Kids Zone to inspire the next generation of nature lovers
  • Down Your Way event listings showing what is happening at your local centre

Waterlife magazine is free for members of WWT. Find out more about other benefits you could enjoy with WWT membership.

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.

What's in the latest issue

One of the UK’s coolest birds, the common crane, is part of one of the UK’s most exciting species reintroduction projects. But it’s not all plain sailing for our wild cranes. Read all about the challenges they face – and how we’re helping – in this issue.

Find out more about the stars of sunny days at any WWT centre - the dragonflies and damselflies that zip over the water. And join us on a tour around the globe as we discover some of the world’s greatest wetlands and the little-known gems where we’re doing some of our most important work.

And this summer, young adventurers are invited to follow in the footsteps of brave pioneers, like our founder Sir Peter Scott, and discover what it takes to survive in the wild. From bug hunting to making dens and wild discoveries, the adventure never stops. Find out more here.

Summer issue: July-September 2019
