Slimbridge Wildlife and Wetland Trust
Friday, 2nd May
Peter Jepson, who kindly arranges the meetings and photo-outings for the very popular Nikon Owner West Midlands Group, would like to invite everyone to a unique photographic opportunity to visit the Slimbridge Wildlife and Wetlands Trust in Gloucestershire on Friday, 2nd May.
The Wildlife and Wetlands Trust of Slimbridge is one of nine wetland centres across the UK founded by Sir Peter Scott in 1946. It is a world-renowned conservation reserve for water-birds set in 120 acres of ground. With a spectacular range of wildlife from water voles to waders, kingfishers to dragonflies, Slimbridge is also home to the world’s largest collection of wild swans from Russia, geese and ducks, as well as being the only place in the world where you can see all six species of flamingo.
Slimbridge holds international significance as the headquarters of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) and it is here that the world-renowned experts of WWT Consulting and Species Conservation are based.
