Will wetlands and the services they provide remain a part of our conservation heritage? Spend a morning on a wetland , and you can still see some of the world’s greatest bird flocks: ducks, geese, herons, egrets, shorebirds and more stretched to the horizon, creating an unbelievable symphony of quacks and honks and squeaks that will echo in your head hours later. Have conservationists taken this wetland protection for granted? Our wetlands are, quite literally, draining away.
