With World Wetlands Day taking place this week, the folks at Aggressor Adventures have released a video hosted by a professional wetland scientist to raise awareness about the importance of wetlands conservation.
One-third of the world’s endangered species rely on wetlands habitat for their survival. Over 95 percent of commercially harvested fish and shellfish come from wetlands.
In the video, wetland scientist Nate Hobbs shares these and many other facts about the ecological significance of the world’s wetlands and the need to protect and preserve them. The video was produced by Aggressor Adventures and promoted through the Sea Of Change Foundation.
World Wetlands Day began in 1971 to call attention to the need for investment in financial, human and political capital to save the world’s wetlands from disappearing and to restore damaged environments. This year’s theme for World Wetlands Day is “Wetlands Action for People and Nature.”
