Across the country, partnerships have come together to create visions for their local wetlands for the benefit of people, wildlife and the historic environment. These local visions are incredibly important, turning the Wetland Vision into reality. The development of local visions is patchy across the country and at various stages of development. Each project uses different approaches to reach their objectives.
The Wetland Vision supports and promotes local visions, offering a network of information on some of the best ways in which to create and enhance wetlands through the initial development of an area based vision. We are actively updating our local visions data and hope to expand our understanding about them in the future.
