Here at the Land Trust - responsible for managing a number of wetlands across the UK - we support World Wetlands Day.
The future of humanity depends on wetlands They purify and replenish our water, and provide the fish and rice that feed billions. Wetlands act as a natural sponge against flooding and drought, and protect our coastlines. They burst with biodiversity, and are a vital means of storing carbon Unfortunately, these benefits are not widely known. Often viewed as wasteland, 64% of our wetlands have disappeared since 1900. Help us turn the tide on the loss and degradation of our wetlands. Join us for World Wetlands Day 2015 – and beyond! #WorldWetlandsDay #WetlandsForOurFuture
