|What are Wetlands?
Most people are familliar with Wetlands in some shape or form - as
their local trout stream, or the frog pond in the park. These are just a few of the many
types of wetlands that are found all around the world. Wetlands can be as large as the
Chesapeake Bay, or as small as a pond. Large or small, wetlands are always a good source
of food, shelter and other resources for animals and plants alike. Often wetlands are the
only source of precious resources for endangered and/or endemic species.
