|The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trusts (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.

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
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.
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.
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 email@example.com)
Sick and injured birds
Unfortunately WWT centres do not have facilities for caring for rehabilitating wildlife
so cannot accept sick or injured birds
