Preserving and Enhancing Wetland Habitats Across the UK

Today is World Wetlands Day!

In the UK, wetlands are found from high altitude peat bogs, springs and upland torrents, to meandering lowland rivers, lakes, ponds, swamps, and intertidal zones. Healthy wetlands help to maintain water quality and reduce flooding, whilst supporting important biodiversity. During increasingly frequent high rainfall events, natural or man-made wetlands can intercept and slow the flow of surface water. This can significantly reduce the impact of flooding downstream whilst providing excellent habitat for aquatic biodiversity.
