Sharing our knowledge at the Flood Defence & Prevention Expo in London
WWT Consulting will be joining WWT’s Head of Wetland Conservation, Rob Shore, at the Flood Defence & Prevention Expo on Thursday this week at Excel, London – come and hear about some of our amazing wetland projects that have multiple benefits, including flood prevention.
Rob will be part of a live panel debate on topics such as environmental solutions for flooding. He will also be talking about some of WWT’s wetland creation projects – from small scale wetland features that soak up rainfall running off school roofs, to the 400-hectare wetland creation project at WWT Steart Marshes that protects 100,000 properties from flooding – while also being a fantastic habitat for wildlife!
As Rob points out “We’re going to show that you can often manage floods more effectively by working with nature, rather than against it.”
