Humans' Impact on the Environment

Humans have built dams in wetlands causing flooding on one side, while the other doesn't get enough water to sustain itself. Humans also urbanize wetlands and create runoff which harms ponds, rivers, and lakes. Humans also have positive effects on the wetlands. Some good people help out and volunteer their time for cleaning the water and saving animals.
