If you are administering a gift in Will that has been left to WWT, our Legacy Team are on hand to help with any questions you may have.

Please note, all legacy administration is dealt with by our Legacy Team, based at our Slimbridge Centre in Gloucestershire. If the gift is restricted to a particular WWT centre, the Legacy Team will ensure that the funds are allocated as per the wishes in the Will.
