Wetlands are essential
In Quebec, wetlands are essential for maintaining biodiversity and water quality.
They also help with the fight against climate change. To safeguard these benefits, areas like the St. Lawrence Valley, the Ottawa River, the Abitibi and the Lac Saint-Jean Plain are top priority for conservation.
There is constant pressure on these fragile habitats. Over time, urbanization and industrialization have had devastating effects on wetlands, jeopardizing Quebec’s great natural resources.
