Missing Ducks at WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre Help us Find Them this Easter


Here at Slimbridge Wetland Centre we have lost some rather special ducks.  A number of our GIANT yellow ducks have gone missing and we need children to help us and Dusty Duck find them this Easter holidays as part of Dusty’s GIANT Duck Hunt.

Dusty Duck is WWT’s new children’s character, exclusively designed by the world-famous Aardman studios to help us get children closer to nature.

This year for the first time Dusty will be joining our annual GIANT duck hunt.  He will help children use their finely honed detective skills to track down elusive GIANT yellow birds hidden high and low around our stunning grounds in return for a delicious chocolate treat.

Dusty’s GIANT Duck Hunt is taking place this Easter from 8th – 23rd April.

Gary Haseley-Nejrup from Slimbridge Wetland Centre said:

“Our wardens are great at counting up all the baby ducklings, goslings and cygnets waddling around our visitors’ feet during the Easter holidays. But for some reason they keep missing these cheeky GIANT yellow rubber ducks – so come along to Slimbridge and help us find them!”

As well as the GIANT duck hunt, we also have a range of other family activities during the Easter holidays, including our amazing crafts, canoe safaris and daily amphibian talks.
