Wildlife art continues to be an important part of Slimbridge Wetland Centre, building on the artistic legacy of Sir Peter Scott.
In 2000, the Cheng - Kim Loke Gallery was opened with a retrospective of his work and has since housed exhibitions by many local and internationally recognised artists, displaying a wide variety of media.
