Join our exclusive community of Life Members today and help create a brighter future for vital wetland habitats and the nature that relies on them.
From starling murmurations and sightings of water rails emerging from reedbeds, to the first tips of early bulbs, nature soothes the soul in this season of short days. Winter is a time like no other to begin a lifetime of support for WWT.
Crucially, the unswerving support of our Life Members allows us to plan and commit to essential conservation work for wetland habitats and species most at risk.
With freshwater wetlands only covering 1% of the earth’s surface but 40% of species relying on them, we cannot underestimate the scale of work and time needed to ensure the survival of these life support systems.
A WWT Life Membership supports the long term, essential work we need to do to save wetland habitats and the threatened and declining species that rely on them. This can mean the difference between survival and extinction. Our watery places aren’t just vital for wildlife but for you too, we now know that spending time in wetlands can give you the feel-good benefits essential to your wellbeing.
Over half of freshwater and wetland species in the UK are declining in numbers, with 13% at risk of extinction
90% of freshwater wetland habitats have been lost or destroyed in England in the past 400 years
Spending time in blue spaces, like wetlands, may benefit your wellbeing more than being in green spaces
