Why Protect Wetlands?

Powerful ecosystems are key to safeguarding freshwater health: wetlands.

Every year on February 2nd, people from around the world gather to celebrate World Wetlands Day and raise 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.
