WLI was founded 30 years ago at WWT in the UK. WWT has recalled this as part of marking their own 75th anniversary.

WWT produces a magazine for its members three times a year, called Waterlife. In the Winter 2021/22 edition, they learn about one of the founders of WLI, Doug Hulyer.

Doug talks of the early days of WLI, and the developments since.

He fondly recalls working with WLI members: "All over the world there are folk willing to push themselves, and others, to realise the dream of places teeming with wildlife, where people come and stay awhile, leaving with similes on their faces"
