Give the gift of open space and wildlife this Christmas with a WWT Martin Mere annual pass
1 month ago
Martin Mere offers 600 acres of amazing wetland scenery, you can discover many species of wildfowl as you explore nature all year-long.
There’s only so many pairs of socks you can buy for Uncle Ernie, or bubbles and biscuits for Auntie Sue, but there’s a Christmas gift you can give that will last long after the tree and tinsel have been taken down.
And it’s not just you and the people you love who’ll get to enjoy it – the wetlands and wildfowl our planet depends on will benefit too!
Membership of WWT Martin Mere costs from just £4.75 a month, and it’s the perfect present.
Not only does it last for a whole year, if you’re a member you can visit the Burscough wildlife haven as often as you want and there’s loads to see and do whatever your age.
* Every day is different at WWT Martin Mere and not only do you get to see nature and the changing seasons, you can get up-close-and-personal to some of its wonderful wildlife. There are 800 acres of wetlands which are home to thousands of rare birds, cheeky otters, and an all-star cast of pink flamingos and Hawaiian geese to name a few.
* You can listen to live commentary from a warden to learn all about the conservation work the team do and go on your own trail to see how many species you can find, or take a seat in one of the hides and watch the wonderful wildlife in its natural habitat.
* You can go on a wild walk or venture on one of the guided walks, or watch a whooper swan and wild bird feed.
* Or it might be one of the many organised events you put in your diary, from photography and art workshops, to an exhibition of GIANT LEGO Brick Animal sculptures, or craft activities for old and young.
Of course, it’s not just about exciting adventures. You may want to relax and unwind in peaceful spaces in the great outdoors and take in the sights and sounds of nature – proven to be good for our health and wellbeing – or meet friends and family for a catch-up at the Mere Side Café.
But while you’re doing that your contribution will be making a massive difference to the work WWT does.
Each membership supports its essential conservation work and helps it to protect species that have fallen victim to habitat destruction as well as continuing essential campaigns to tackle biodiversity loss, pollution, and climate change.
And everyone who joins or is given membership as a gift receives a membership pack full of information about WWT’s conservation work and its 10 wetland centres, discount vouchers, and the latest Waterlife magazine which is packed with latest news and stories, in-depth features, wildlife spotter guides, kids’ activities, and wetland activities for everyone in the family.
You can go online to order the gift of membership HERE – or (why not?) treat yourself!
And you can guarantee 12 months of fun and fab adventures – and a gift that won’t end up in the local charity shop by New Year.
