Video: Wetlands of International Importance

Humans are destroying wetlands three times faster than we are destroying tropical rainforests. Society often overlooks how wetlands purify water, sequester carbon, prevent floods and drought, shelter rare and transboundary migratory species, grow medicines and genetic plant material, and offer recreation, occupation, tourism, spiritual, and artistic opportunities. The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance protects thousands of wetland sites internationally and forty sites in the United States. In this video we journey from coast to coast to tour the United States’ most exceptional wetlands.
