Wetland Preservation

Wetlands are a very special type of ecosystem, because they literally are not aquatic or dryland, but both. Wetlands are characterized by soil that is saturated with water, which means it is the home of aquatic flora and fauna and terrestrial flora and fauna. It is an area of transition, which means that animals that live there, and vegetation that flourishes there, can only live there and nowhere else. As a result of this reality, many nations are now doing everything they can to promote wetland preservation, which includes stopping developers from draining the area and drying it out to make it useful for building. In some areas, wetlands work as very much required breakers. It’s been said that Hurricane Katrina would not have been so absolutely devastating if the city was still surrounded and protected by wetland. There is still plenty of wetland across the nation, but it is absolute critical to promote wetland preservation so it will not be completely lost to future generations. But the reality is that by 1993, a full half of the world’s wetlands had been drained and were completely lost.

There are many aspects of wetland preservation, but the three most important elements are protection, exclusion, and education. The government can declare areas of wetland to be protected, and thus, cannot be drained or flooded. Exclusion keeps a small section of the wetlands available for public enjoyment, but the rest is left outside of human reach. And finally, education is key in wetland preservation because for many years, people thought wetlands were merely wastelands.
