A natural defence system for drought, floods and climate change.
Working hand-in-hand with Canadians, we are conserving our remaining wetlands.
We have a lot to show for more than 85 years of conservation work. But it is far from done. We are building on the momentum of our successes—working with our supporters to protect and restore our natural defense systems.
Our understanding of wetlands is growing, but they continue to decrease. In settled areas of Canada, up to 70% of our wetlands have already been destroyed or degraded. As they continue to disappear, so too do the many benefits they provide.
They protect us from flooding, drought and climate change. They protect wildlife by providing hundreds of species with safe places to eat, sleep and raise young. They give us natural places to play, learn and explore. They also clean the water we enjoy at beaches, lakes and rivers.
Together, we can restore our wetlands.
