What are Wetlands? 

Wetlands, as the name indicates are bodies of water that are flooded with water either seasonally or permanently. Wetlands are very important due to their unique fauna and flora. It is the place present side by side with large water bodies like rivers and lakes.

In this pace of population increase, it is the need of the day to recover wetlands from the harms of evils created by humans. Humans depend for their food and cash on wetlands, therefore, it is needed to take care of the species as well as the structure of wetlands.

Let us rise hands for an environment that is friendly as well as productive not only for mankind but also for other organisms of the world.

Nature is for all.
