Why should we care?
The scientific evidence is clear: wetland habitats are decreasing at an alarming rate. In Ontario, we lose 10 acres of land to development every hour! Not only are wetland habitats home to many other species of plants and animals, they also provide many other critical ecosystem services. Wetlands also: purify our water, store water during dry periods, prevent floods.
We ALL have the ability to help reverse nature loss. But time is not on our side. We need to act now!
