Our latest statement on coronavirus

Posted on 22 Mar 2020

Updated: 22 March at 08:30

We have taken the difficult decision to close all of our wetland centres to all visitors until further notice.

In a change to our previous announcement, WWT members will not be able to access any of our wetland centres.

We have done our best to stay open as somewhere for you to get fresh air and a dose of nature, things that are more important than ever during this difficult time.

However, our overriding concern is keeping everyone safe and healthy in light of the current guidance on social distancing.

Rest assured that throughout the closure, we will continue to care for our birds and animals.

Whilst our centres are closed to the public, WWT continues working behind the scenes, and we will be stepping up our online content to help those of you who find yourselves suddenly responsible for your children’s education, to give you ideas for things to do in the home and garden and, importantly, to keep you connected to nature.

We will keep the situation under review and will post any future updates on this page.

Kevin Peberdy
Chief Operating Officer
