public service announcement

the wetlands

Wetlands are amazing things. They filter phosphorous (found in cleaners) and
nitrates (found in fertilizers). They hold water during drought, and the
wetland water evaporates which will most likely cause it to rain. During
floods, they act like sponges and soak up excess water.

But there is a problem. As cities are expanding, we are taking up room and
filling wetlands. Farmeres as well are filling them in to make more room for
their farms. Wetlands provide many homes for animals. Many animals rely on
wetlands. Wetlands need our help! Visit
