WWT Slimbridge is a reserve set up to care for and study wildfowl. It is managed by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, on the estuary of the river Severn. The reserve was the first WWT centre to be opened, on 10 November 1946, by artist and naturalist Sir Peter Scott.

The reserve site covers an area of 3 square kilometres, of which 500,000 square metres is landscaped and can be visited by the public. To cater for bird and duck watchers, several hides have been set up overlooking the fields, streams and lakes bordering the River Severn and the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal.
