Thank you

By playing the National Lottery you're supporting wetland wildlife

This National Lottery Open Week, we’re saying #ThanksToYou and bringing you closer to stunning wetland wildlife at our wetland centres across the UK with our celebratory 2 for 1 ticket offer!

Over the past 20 years, WWT has received over £11 million from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) thanks to National Lottery players.

Donations like this as well as help from our members, supporters and volunteers, play a huge part in enabling us to continue our charity work to conserve, restore and create wetlands, save wetland wildlife, and inspire everyone to value the amazing things healthy wetlands achieve for people and nature.

NLHF funded projects have helped many projects at six of our Centres including our exciting “Slimbridge 75” project that was completed last year, supported by £4.1 million of NLHF funds.

To say thank you, between Saturday 19 and Sunday 27 March we are offering special 2 for 1 entry (off standard admission tickets) to our wetland centres across the UK to anyone with a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard. Please check our full terms and conditions below.

Come and enjoy the perfect spring day out and discover why wetlands are amazing! There’s no better place to take in the sights and sounds of nature as our wetlands are bustling with life at this time of year. Walk amongst a winding trail of chattering, cute chicks and ducklings following their mother along the water’s edge. Enjoy unique experiences and encounters with some of the world’s most endangered birds and exhilarating adventure playgrounds for little explorers. Your 2 for 1 entry ticket and every penny you spend in our centres goes to support our conservation work.
