Wetlands are being polluted by garbage, raw sewage, poisonous chemicals, and recycle.

The only way we can save wetlands is to tell people the importance. Use phosphate free laundry detergent.

Wetlands produce timber, fish, contain floods, and help reduce storm damage. Sometimes they can be a source of drinking water.


These are some the animals living in wetlands frogs, crocodiles, ducks, otters, alligators, amphibians, swans, snakes, and lizards. Some animals have webbed feet and backbones to help them swim.


Wetland plants can either be floating on the water or just growing out of the ground as plants usually do. Some wetland plants have aerenchyma, that is a tissue that store oxygen. A mangrove trees can survive in salt tolerant water and in inundated areas.


Wetlands are usually humid. Occasionally there is acid rain in bogs. Bogs and fens are found in cold areas. Marshes and swamps are found in warm areas. In winter wetlands are 50 to 10 degrees. In summer wetlands can be 68 to 20.
