Wetland Conservation Unit

Our Wetland Conservation Unit implements WWT’s wetland conservation programmes in the UK and internationally. With forty staff, we are one of the largest wetland conservation organisations in the world.

We undertake direct action to conserve sites and species, and catalyse wider action through demonstrating what works, building the evidence, providing training and guidance, engaging the public, and advocating to decision-makers. We partner with a wide range of NGOs, universities, governments and businesses, and receive funding from multiple sources, including in particular the members and supporters of WWT.
