WWT joins the WSBF

WWT joins the WSBF

30th November 2018

The WWT is a conservation charity that saves wetlands, which are essential for life itself. Wetlands are the primary source of drinking water for people and wildlife. They also connect us with nature, and with ourselves, through beautiful landscapes and inspiring encounters with wildlife.

Tom Fewins, Head of Government Affairs at WWT said: 

"Wetlands are vital for wildlife and people, and WWT is passionate about ensuring that everyone has access to wetland habitats and the benefits they provide. The Government has pledged to make ours the first generation to leave the natural environment in a better state than we found it; the 25 year environment plan and the UK’s pending departure from the EU presents a massive opportunity to do this by improving the way water and land is managed as well as create more wetlands closer to where we live and work. WWT is delighted to join the Westminster Sustainable Business Forum to help further this and the findings and recommendations of the Bricks & Water report."
