wetland facts.

Wetlands are habitats on and around shallow water, mud, or damp, spongy soils that a have water level under 20 feet deep.

2 3

Wetlands help control flooding and absorb greenhouse gases. Half the worlds wetlands have been destroyed over the last 100 years, mostly though human activity and climate change. `

Wetlands control water flow acting as a sponge soaking up floodwater then slowly releasing it which helps control inundation and coastal erosion.

wetland facts.

5

Wetlands filter out excess nutrients found in agricultural fertilizers keeping our river lakes and oceans clean.

6

Wetland habitats are full of wildlife from reeds and water lilies to beavers and wading birds. Some wetland animals such as the beaver have been misunderstood. The beaver has been hunted not only for its fur but also because it had been blamed for building dams that cause floods. Dams are built by beavers to create a wetland habitat for their families and other wetland species. The dams purify the water and actually slow floodwaters.
