This information has been provided by The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) and is supplied in its original format.

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust’s (WWT) mission is to conserve wetlands and their biodiversity. Founded in 1946 by the artist and naturalist Sir Peter Scott, WWT is the largest international wetland conservation charity in the UK.

WWT promotes wetland conservation by:

Bringing People Closer to Wildlife
Engendering care and concern for wetlands by bringing people into close contact with ducks, geese and swans at wetland centres throughout the UK.

Saving Threatened Waterbirds
Undertaking conservation action for threatened wetland birds, including long-term monitoring of wild populations and managing captive breeding programmes.

Providing Scientific Solutions

Investigating the biology of wetlands and their biodiversity to underpin conservation actions.

Providing Safe Havens for Birds
WWT sites provide sanctuary for thousands of internationally important wetland birds and other species on its nine reserves.

Protecting Wetlands for Life
Contributing to policy and legal protection of wetlands by providing decision-makers with advice based on sound science.

Creating Wetlands
Developing wetlands big and small, including large-scale projects such as those showcased at WWT's Welsh Centre at Llanelli and in the heart of London at the Wetland Centre.

Further information
Much of WWT's work for wetlands is funded through its nine visitor centres and its membership of over 70,000 members (for more information email membership@wwt.org.uk)

Sick and injured birds

Unfortunately WWT centres do not have facilities for caring for rehabilitating wildlife so cannot accept sick or injured birds
