Last weekend we were invited to the WWT Wetland Centre in Arundel for the day which, surprisingly, was our first ever visit. Despite being regular visitors to the historic town, we’ve never got round to visiting the Wetland Centre, so when they invited us to come see them for the day we weren’t going to miss the chance.
Wetlands are found across the world, ranging from giant deltas, mighty estuaries and mudflats to floodplains and peatlands that humans have relied on for hundreds of years.
40% of all species rely on freshwater wetlands, despite covering less than 1% of the world’s surface.
Prior to our visit, we’d only ever visited one other Wetland Centre previously – which was wonderful – but for some reason we’ve never thought to explore any other locations. Going on this weekend’s visit, we instantly regret not visiting sooner.
