Today is World Wetlands Day!
Did you know that wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests? They are earth’s most threatened ecosystem.
The vicious cycle of wetland loss threatens water and soil quality, habitat, plant, and animal biological diversity. Many wildlife species rely on wetlands for feeding and nesting grounds. Additionally, wetlands provide water for livestock, reduce flood and drought impacts, and store carbon for your crops.
