Wetlands are some of the most threatened habitats in the world, yet also the most vital for wildlife and people.

They’re areas of land that are either permanently or seasonally inundated with water, supporting species that are adapted to live there. They’re dynamic, changing with the seasons and over time into different forms.

Often, types of wetland habitat work together as part of an intricate ecosystem, home to a huge diversity of wildlife.

Wetlands come in all shapes and sizes. They can be found in millions of squares kilometres of stunning scenery or simply in your back garden.
