WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre truly is one of the jewels in Wales’ crown. Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) this internationally important Ramsar site is home to countless natural treasures including rare plants, thousands of migratory birds, spoonbills, kingfishers, owls, butterflies, dragonflies and elusive water voles. Restoration work was first started by Sir Peter Scott, son of the famous explorer Scott of The Antarctic and founder of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT). As I was being shown around the centre and reserve it quickly hit me how important the work of WWT is. Not only do sites like this matter because of the many threatened species that call them home, they also show visitors, including children, how important it is to respect our environment. An annual membership that gives free admission to all WWT sites is available, giving great value for money.
