World Wetlands Day

Today is World Wetlands Day.

Today we celebrate wetlands.

Today we educate the world on the significance of wetlands in our ecosystem which we are part of.

Today we also seek to protect wetlands that are facing unwarranted destruction.

A wetland is a place where the land is covered by water; either salty, fresh or alkaline water. These places are physically seen as swamps, ponds, marshes, deltas, edges of lakes or places that frequently experience flooding.

Wetlands are very productive ecosystems hosting a variety of species from microbes, insects, plants, amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish and mammals.
