We are proud to have launched a new flagship partnership project with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), committing to our support of its ‘Blue Recovery’ campaign. This partnership will deliver major benefits for the UK’s wetlands, and the communities and wildlife who depend on them.
In the UK and around the world, we are facing escalating crises of climate change, biodiversity loss, and worsening mental health and wellbeing. These global issues have been compounded by the pandemic, and driven partly by the loss of important habitats, such as wetlands.
With our support, WWT will enhance and protect critically important wetland habitat across our network of UK wetland sites through a series of conservation projects. Projects will include the creation of new wetland habitat, the development of a new reed bed to naturally treat waste water, the installation of natural flood management features such as farmland ponds, and the removal of non-native invasive species which threaten biodiversity.
