Naturally shady and cool, our wetland sites are great places to spend a summer’s day. The water and resources attract species from all over the world but in summer they’re a haven especially for bees, butterflies and dragonflies. Wetlands are crucial support systems all year round for almost all species but at this time of year with increasing droughts, they’re an essential lifeline.
What’s more, as carbon stores and natural flood defenders, they are one of our best protectors against climate change and its disastrous effects. And yet, wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests – 35% have disappeared since 1970.
