As the days lengthen and temperatures start to warm, summer migrants start to return from their winter grounds to breed in the UK. Wetlands are not only lifelines for them, to provide food and a safe place to nest, but for over one billion of us too.
What’s more, as carbon stores and natural flood defenders, they are one of our best protectors against climate change and its disastrous effects. And yet, wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests – 35% have disappeared since 1970.
