Did you know that wetlands – however big or small – provide essential homes for wildlife? Not only that, but different types of wetlands can help clean our water, protect us against drought and flooding, capture carbon and boost our health and wellbeing.

Wetlands can...

Restore biodiversity

Nature is in freefall. Wetlands help to clean our water and bring a whole range of wildlife back to our degraded rivers, lakes and ponds.

Reduce flooding & drought

Wetlands act as sponges, holding water on the land to help prevent flooding and increase drought resilience.

Store carbon

Certain types of wetlands store more carbon, more quickly than all the world’s forests combined – helping to combat climate change.

Improve wellbeing

Healthy wetlands make us feel better. Creating urban wetlands where 84% of us live can increase access to wellbeing.

As Mike Dilger explains, it's the biggest boost you can give to nature.
