Greenland white-fronted goose By donating today, you will help protect the wetlands necessary for the Greenland white-fronted goose to survive. The Anser albifrons flavirostris (to give its scientific name) breed in Greenland before coming to Ireland and Britain for winter. Numbers have declined greatly from 35,000 in spring 1999 to just 18,900 in spring 2016 due to a number of threats in their breeding grounds.

Bewick's swan A donation today will help Bewick’s swans to return to their UK winter home. These remarkable birds have always been a favourite sight in the UK as they arrive for the winter from the Russian tundra. Yet their numbers have declined from nearly 30,000 in 1995 to only 18,000 in 2015.
The water vole Donating today will help the water vole to once again thrive across the UK. Made famous by Ratty in The Wind in the Willows, the water vole holds a very special place in our hearts. It was once widespread in the UK, enjoying the richness of food and shelter our wetland environment provided. Although populations are thriving in our closely monitored WWT wetland reserves, the situation across the rest of the UK is dire.
