Fetsund Lenser Steering Group visit WWT Slimbridge and London Wetland Centres
Last week we welcomed a group from Fetsund Lenser Museum in Norway who have been developing ideas for public engagement and visitor facilities at their site on the Nordre Øyeren Ramsar Nature Reserve, northern Europe’s largest inland delta. We presented at a conference there last year (read more here) and it was great to meet the group again and host them at our UK sites.
The Steering Group visited Slimbridge and London with a view to discovering what facilities might be appropriate for them. We braved the unusually chilly weather for a tour of the grounds at each site.
We, of course, look forward to providing any further advice and support as the plans develop, to help maximise the tourism and educational potential of the wetlands whilst minimising environmental impact.
