WWT protects wetlands and wildlife. They have a number of centres around the UK which in non-Covid-19 times you can visit. As WWT says, if rainforest are the lungs of the planet, then wetlands are the lifeblood. We all need wetlands to keep our water clean and to help protect against flooding, drought and pollution. They are home to many different species and in the UK, they are home to 10% of all our species. So they matter to people and animals.
EMERGENCY APPEAL: WWT have launched an urgent appeal to help them continue their conservation work - like so many charities, their income has been badly affected by Covid-19. You can donate here.
Among the UK's WWT centres, one is based in London. And a very Happy Anniversary to WWT London who celebrated 20 years on 26 May 2020!
The WWT has brought the countryside to London and the London Wetland Centre gives amazing peace and quiet to both wildlife and people.
The centre records 180 species of bird each year, including stunning kingfishers, sand martins, wading birds, though the times of the year vary, of course.
The centre is currently closed due to the coronavirus, but please take a few minutes to watch this film and enjoy.
