Top 100 Attractions Review

WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre in Llanelli truly is one of the WWT's Jewels in the crown. Given a Site of Special Scientific Interest status and listed as a special protection area, it really becomes apparent why Sir Peter Scott chose this very special site to play host to yet another of his wildfowl and wetland sites. As I was being shown around the Centre and site it quickly hit me how important the work WWT do. Not only do sites like this matter to the many species that call this home for various parts of the year but how important it is that we show our children how important it is to respect our environment that surrounds us. A yearly membership to all WWT's sites is available, and I'm sure as you visit some of the many sites it will soon become apparent how great value for money a yearly membership is.
