Find out what life is like for a real explorer at Slimbridge Wetland Centre’s Global Adventurers event this summer.
Journey across the world to discover wetland challenges. Head to Base Camp at the South Lake discovery hut to collect your Global Adventurer passport. Leap from land to land from North America, South America and the new Arctic Adventure exhibit to find out what life is like for a real-life adventurer on the Arctic Russian Tundra.
From discovering what birds really eat to measuring, weighing and recording a life-size swan replica, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained. You can also get into character by dressing up as a researcher and working out which word is written in your Global Adventurers passport using the Russian Cyrillic alphabet. Other fun attractions across the site include daily family friendly talks about greater flamingos and tropical amphibians, where you can learn about and even handle different species.
If that wasn’t enough, design your own folklore totem pole based on your own adventure story or try out pond dipping.
