Inspire existing and future generations

When our founder Sir Peter Scott first determined to transform Slimbridge into a nature reserve, he wanted visitors to discover their own love of wetlands and the species that live there. Today is no different.

Slimbridge 2020 will bring people of all ages even closer to this amazing world – igniting their passion and inspiring them to go on to care and protect it for generations to come. If the conservation pioneers of tomorrow are to follow in Sir Peter Scott’s footsteps then we must build on his incredible legacy. All it takes is your support today.

Inspiring a new generation

Help us in our final push to complete Slimbridge 2020

Duck Decoy

In Victorian days, the duck decoy was a way to catch ducks to eat – but under Scott’s leadership it became a chance to study water birds for conservation.

Arctic Adventure

Brr! We may think of the Arctic tundra as a cold and barren landscape. But many of the birds who migrate to Slimbridge start their journey in the frosty north.

Mission Possible

When Sir Peter Scott first heard about the Nene, this extraordinary creature was on the brink of extinction. But a huge conservation effort meant this rare bird has made a remarkable comeback.
