The ground-breaking new exhibits will allow you to explore the incredible life and work of conservationist and WWT founder, Sir Peter Scott whose legacy still drives all of our work at WWT today.
This £6 million, 3 year project, known as Slimbridge 2020 is well under-way with hands-on new exhibits and experiences opening in 2019-2020. Find out more about our new exhibits.
WWT founder, Sir Peter Scott was a visionary who understood that human health and emotional wellbeing depend on the natural world. He demonstrated that showing people how amazing wetlands are can ignite a passion to protect them.
We hope that our new exhibits and wildlife experiences will allow visitors to explore the amazing world of wetlands and feel closer to nature and inspired to take action to conserve wildlife.
