World Wetlands Survey

From May to December 2020, citizen scientists assessed their local wetland, to help this global survey, run by WWN, the Society of Wetland Scientists, Cobra Collective, and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.

The three lead scientists are preparing the data for publication in July 2021. Nick Davidson, Rob McInnes, Matt Simpson and Max Finlayson will also look at a subsequent publication comparing the 2017 and 2020 data.
