WWT’s Christmas Raffle 2017
What does a traditional British Christmas mean to you? Carols on Christmas Eve, a brisk walk on Christmas Day? Here at WWT, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the magnificent Bewick’s swans that migrate to our wetlands year after year. Please help us protect them by taking part in our Christmas Raffle. And you could win our First Prize of £3,000!
Our long history with Bewick’s dates back to 1964, when our founder Sir Peter Scott realised that each individual swan could be identified by the unique pattern of yellow and black on its bill. This discovery led him to start one of the longest running single species studies in the world.
Today, the conservation work he started is more important than ever. In recent years the number of Bewick’s reaching our wetlands from Arctic Russia has plummeted by almost half due to loss of habitat, illegal hunting and life-threatening hazards, such as power lines and wind turbines along the flyway.
All you have to do to help protect Bewick’s from further decline, and all wetland wildlife is to take part in our raffle.
