Plants in the wetlands
There are many different types of plants in the wetlands such as pitcher plants, hyacinths, mosses, and many more. Certain plants can only live in the wetlands and most of them live in the water. In the wetlands plant life is being threatened by the water level dropping, the pollution is making the water dirty, and there can be so much water that it drowns all the plants.
