There is a tendancy for many of us to look at what we think of as wasteland, that water-logged, boggy stuff you can see.  But it's vital to many waterbirds, reptiles & mammals and its protection is critical to the planet's health and the animals' wellbeing.  The WWT helps protect these habitats, protect endangered species & inspires people to take positive conservation action.  There are 9 WWT centres open to visitors around the UK.  You can buy a membership here.
