    Event Description

    Here at WWT London Wetland Centre we’re well aware of the value of wetlands to people and wildlife. As well as providing a home for a huge range of plants and animals, and food and raw materials for people, wetlands undertake a variety of hidden ‘services’ for the planet including water purification, carbon absorption, flood prevention and drought relief.

    In fact, the services provided by nature as a whole – everything from Indian vultures to Chinese bees and from soil microbes to ocean plankton – keep the global economy going. No nature, no economy.

    Event Description

    The Eden Project in Cornwall will be hosting an electric bike show from Saturday, April 20 until Wednesday, April 24, giving visitors the chance to test out the latest trend in cycling.

    Electric bikes are conventional bikes that have an electric motor and added battery. When the cyclist pedals on an electric bike, the motor helps them to go further than they would under their own steam.

    WWT London Wetland Centre is a marvellous location for birdwatching and, at this time of year, for "bird listening" too!

    As songbirds declare their territories and attempt to attract a mate they're often hidden away in the dense foliage of trees or reedbeds. So getting to know them by the sounds they make is very handy whatever your level of interest in birds and wildlife. In this one and a half hour session you'll learn how to identify birds through song, guided by one of our experts through useful tips, notes and fieldwork.

    WWT London Wetland Centre is one of the best places to watch bats in London as we have about seven species that hunt on site.

    Our bat walks give you the chance not only to see these amazing flying mammals and their astonishing aerial acrobatics, but also learn more about them with a talk by one of our bat experts in our theatre before heading out to the reserve. We supply bat detectors to help you identify the species that are swooping around and to listen to them ‘chattering’ as they hunt for food.
