Celebrity-Designed Dusty Ducks Land at WWT Llanelli

The phenomenal celebrity-designed Dusty Ducks are coming back to WWT Llanelli this spring!

Originally designed by the world-famous Aardman studios to celebrate WWT’s 70th anniversary, Dusty is a big duck on an exciting adventure – exploring, trying new things and of course making friends along the way.

From Saturday 5 May to Sunday 3 June, our six-foot-tall Dusty will have 14 celebrity-designed and inspired sidekicks in tow, forming a vibrant family-friendly trail encouraging visitors to get out and about around our wonderful grounds and wetlands.

Celebrity Dusty Ducks include Chris Packham’s Bowie-themed Ziggy StarDusty, Steve Backshall’s Explorer Dusty, Joanna Lumley’s Absolutely Fabulous Patsy Dusty, and Justin Fletcher’s Pirate Justy Dusty.

Nigel Williams, WWT Llanelli Centre Manager said:

“We’re thrilled to welcome all our amazing, giant Dusty Ducks to WWT Llanelli – they are going to look fantastic in amongst our real life wildlife.  Kids (and big kids) will love all the different wild and wacky Dusty Ducks, each designed by a well-known celebrity with their own take on Dusty Duck. The trail is a great way to get children out and about exploring nature while having lots of fun and there’s certainly plenty to keep families busy all day. ”

These exciting and colourful sculptures take visitors around the beautiful grounds at Llanelli Wetland Centre and form part of our spring activity programme which includes our popular Downy Duckling Experience (26 May – 3 June) where visitors go behind-the-scenes for one week only to meet our baby birds and learn more about the conservation of endangered species.

The Celebrity Dusty Duck trail and Downy Duckling Week activities are included in admission.
