World Wetlands Day

World Wetlands Day

On February 2nd; we celebrated World Wetlands Day!

Wetlands provide water purification by acting as a filter removing sediments and other pollutants before the water is slowly released into the aquifer.

Wetlands store approximately 44.6 million tonnes of carbon per year globally: they play a crucial role in maintaining the ecosystem and mitigating the impacts of climate change.

Due to population growth, Wetlands are facing increasing pressure of being impacted.

Wetland Conservation and Restoration Efforts, balance economic growth with the preservation of our natural resources.

Wetland Mitigation Banking allows for the protection and restoration of wetlands as well as provide mitigation for unavoidable wetland impacts within the same watershed; resulting in a no-net loss of lost wetlands functions.
