Can I donate to a particular WWT wetland centre?

Yes, our online donation form allows you to specify which centre you would like to support. You can also advise us how we should use your donation by writing the name of your favourite centre on the back of your cheque, or on our donation form.

Can you send me donation forms to distribute?

Yes, we can supply donation forms. For further information about donating and to request donation forms, please contact us.

Can I donate to support WWT’s international work or to a particular project?

Yes. Please contact us and we’ll tell you about our current activities and how your gift in memory can support them.

Can I donate via JustGiving?

Yes, just visit to create your tribute page.

Can I donate via a funeral director?

Yes, many funeral directors will offer this service. Please see our information on donations at a funeral.

Can I place a plaque or a bench at one of your centres?

WWT looks after some of Britain’s most spectacular wetlands, and people come to our centres to experience their natural beauty. The best way to create a tribute for your loved one is through an inscribed leaf on our Tree of Life at our Slimbridge and London centres or the Commemoration Books at multiple WWT centres.

I’d like to raise funds by doing a sponsored challenge. Can you help?

Certainly. We can suggest ideas and offer support. You might like to start by looking at our fundraising page.

Can I scatter ashes at one of your wetland centres or reserves?

Unfortunately our centres no longer allow the scattering of ashes due to the environmental impact it can cause, particularly in relation to the soil chemistry and biodiversity. Our priority is to protect wetlands and their wildlife, ensuring that habitats and ecosystems remain unharmed. Please visit our gifts in memories page for suggestions on how to remember a loved one.

What’s the difference between a gift in memory and a gift in a will?

Gifts in memory commemorate a friend or loved one who has died, or a special occasion you wish to mark. Gifts in wills are charitable bequests made in a will. To find out more about leaving a gift in your will, please see our information on how to leave a gift in your will. If your loved one has kindly made a gift in their will to WWT, please contact us.

My question hasn't been answered here!
