Wetlands

wetlandsBy Anya

Wetlands are very helpful to our world in many different ways, such as, they act like a sponge so they can help soak up water in a flood, and they reduce the impacts from storm damage. Most people think that wetlands dont matter, but if we lost wetlands we would also loose many inoccent creatures who have done nothing wrong like bees who live by wetlands so they can pollinate. We would also loose endangered species such as the northern leapored frog, We need to protect our wetlands and we can do that by not littering, dumping dish soap or any products that have unnatural ingredients in them.
