The Wetland Vision sets out where new wetlands could be created and current wetlands restored over the next 50 years. By turning the Vision into reality we can make space for water in our countryside, help people and wildlife adapt to a changing climate, protect our heritage and reap the many benefits that wetlands can provide.
The Wetland Vision is a partnership between the RSPB, the Wildlife Trusts, English Heritage, the Environment Agency and Natural England. For more detail on the project see www.wetlandvision.org.uk.
Natural England has allocated a further £4,000,000 to the Wetland Vision partnership between 2009 and 2011, (£2,000,000 in each year) in support of landscape-scale wetland projects and the delivery of the targets for priority wetland habitats, for which we are lead partner.
Please note: All grant monies have been fully allocated, and the grant scheme is currently closed to further applicants.
