National Insect Week returns in 2022

Wildfowl and Wetland Trust

Wildfowl and Wetland Trust

Visit WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre and discover how the WWT Trust is working around the World to save different species of birds from extinction. Visit hides where you can view the Severn Reserve wetlands to see the wild birds. See otters or our flamingo lagoon. For the adventurous, hire a canoe and explore our reserve canals, or take one of our Land Rover Safaris where a warden will take you on to the reserve to see the wild birds, hares and flowers.
