Flight of the Swans is just the start

Sacha’s extraordinary journey has come to an end, but its legacy will live on for many years to come.

Thanks to our school visits and media coverage, people all along the Bewick’s swans’ flyway are now joining with us to demand protection for these birds and the vital wetlands they need to survive.

But it’s not just Bewick’s swans that need our help.  Around the world WWT’s pioneering conservation work is creating and saving wetlands and bringing species back from the brink of extinction.

But our work can only continue with your help. A small monthly donation from you today will enable us to:

  • Save critically endangered species from extinction
  • Protect the world’s most vulnerable wetland habitats and their wildlife
  • Inspire children (and everyone!) to learn about wetlands and their wildlife, and take action to protect them
  • Work with communities around the world who depend on wetlands for their livelihoods, so that wildlife and people can live in harmony

Thank you for your support. We couldn’t
do any of this without you.

"This expedition encapsulates WWT's remit - a remarkable and original way of telling the story of the journey of the Bewick swans, of learning more about them and passing that knowledge on. This is an enormously brave and exciting undertaking, and one I believe Peter Scott, the founder of WWT, would have thoroughly approved of."
