World Wetlands Day: Why Protect Wetlands?

Powerful ecosystems are key to safeguarding freshwater health: wetlands.

Today is World Wetlands Day, the perfect time to reflect on and raise global awareness on the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet.

The team here at the Canadian Freshwater Alliance works hard to safeguard the health of our freshwater, and we know how crucial wetlands are to that work.

Despite the incredible services wetlands provide, our precious wetlands continue to be lost to new developments.

Please join us to spread the word about the contribution of wetlands to the quantity and quality of fresh water on our planet, and about the ways in which wetlands support animals, plants, and countless other organisms. 

Are you ready to ensure that watershed health is a priority? Stand with us and other freshwater champions across the country as we let the government know we are expecting funding commitments in Budget 2021 for freshwater health and security!
