#Wetlands are incredibly important for people and nature. They are home to 40% of the world’s biodiversity🦩🐸, support over 1/8th of the world’s livelihoods, and provide vital connectivity between landscapes. Yet, these unique ecosystems are disappearing three times faster than forests, with more than 35% of wetlands already degraded or lost since 1970. 🌎
Reversing this trend is critical.
This year, #WorldWetlandsDay highlights the urgent need to prioritize wetland restoration and calls on an entire generation to take steps to revive and restore degraded wetlands. The theme builds on – and contributes to the efforts to heal the planet as championed by the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
