World Wetlands Day is a day to focus on our vital wetlands that host a huge variety of life, protect our coastlines, provide natural sponges against river flooding, and store carbon dioxide to regulate climate change. They also provide livelihood to farmers, fisherman, the tourism industry and more.
More than 64 percent of our wetlands have disappeared since 1900. Plastic pollution is a gigantic threat worldwide. Learn more at http://www.worldwetlandsday.org
