Celebrating wetland habitats
Do you appreciate our wetland habitats and the things they do for us and wildlife?
Today is World Mangrove Day and this Sunday is International Bog Day! We value all wetlands and work all over the world to protect them for the widlife that depends on them and the benefits they provide us through adaptations to climate change, cleaning water, storing water, providing food and fuel, and providing fabulous recreation opportunities – especially when it’s hot!
Why not find a wetland near you and go and see how special it is or visit one of the WWT Wetland Centres if you are in the UK. The Ballycroy National Park Visitor Centre in Ireland, which we worked on a few years ago, is offering bog walks this weekend to help people discover the wonders of bogs.
Love our wetlands!
