Swansea Bay provides an over wintering and passage site for a larger number of waders. Although forming part of a complex which includes the Gwendraeth, Burry and Severn Estuaries, it supports significant proportions of some species in its own right the Bay is of international importance in this respect. The Centre celebrates this Site of Special Scientific Interest located in the heart of the sweeping Swansea Bay, at Blackpill. The Wildlife Centre was opened to make Swansea residents and visitors aware of the importance of such a site, and to encourage them to be conscious of conservationist ideas.
Blackpill is an important feeding station for migratory waders such as Sanderling, Ringed Plovers and Oystercatchers. These birds stop over to refuel on their global journeys, from Africa to Greenland, and the Russian Steppes, and back again. The Centre is only open from October to April, to view the migratory birds on Blackpill's SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).
