The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust is a charity which relies on the generous support of volunteers at all its wetland centres to help with conservation work and other daily tasks. It also organises Team Activity Days for local companies and businesses giving them the chance to spend a day in the great outdoors while helping us to tackle larger projects.

Slimbridge has over 100 volunteers and each volunteer is a very welcome addition to the team. Without them the centre would not be able to offer the activities, events and all round excellent visitor experience that it does. Although volunteers work without financial reward there are many other ways that they benefit from becoming a WWT volunteer; learning new skills, meeting new people, keeping fit and gaining experience are just a few.
