WETLANDS

Our wetlands are facing a crisis. They are abound with life & their inhabitants are familiar to
us all. However, over 90% of our wetlands are gone & many of our plants and animals now
face severe threats. The Conservation Department can't save everything, and the losses
are still mounting. You can help save our
precious wetlands.

WHAT IS A WETLAND?


A wetland is an area of land whose soil is saturated with moisture either permanently or
seasonally. Such areas may also be covered partially or completely by shallow pools of water.

They come in many different guises, including bogs, streams, swamps, lakes,
lagoons, estuaries, mudflats and flood plains. The water found in wetlands can
be saltwater, freshwater, or brackish.
