Established in 1946 by Sir Peter Scott, one of the most influential conservationists of his time, the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) has grown to become a leading UK-based wetland conservation organization. WWT works across the UK and around the world with a diverse range of partners to create, manage, and restore wetlands. WWT also engages with and works to inspire people, governments, and businesses to take direct action to save wetlands and their wildlife and provide the tools that enable them to do so.
