Wetlands, land areas saturated with water, are an important part of the world’s ecosystem. They can be found all across the globe in all kinds of different climates. Many plants and animals that don’t live anywhere else are abundant here, making it the most biodiverse ecosystem in the world. Many people also rely on the wetlands to make a living. Unfortunately most people think of wetlands as unusable land, getting in the way of urban growth. Because of this, wetlands face more destruction than any other ecosystem. Wetlands Day is the day to raise awareness of the importance of Wetlands and their risks of being destroyed.
