Wetlands are essential to the health of plants, animals, and people. We need flourishing wetlands, but we’re losing them at an alarming rate. A Rocha is working to conserve and restore wetlands and other vulnerable ecosystems across the country. We are doing even more this year—but we need your support.
A Rocha interns performing water quality surveys on a local landowner’s property.
Here are just a few of the reasons healthy wetlands matter for us all.
- Wetlands provide homes to countless endangered species, from fish to waterfowl.
- Wetlands reduce the risk and impact of extreme weather such as floods and droughts.
- Wetlands improve water quality by filtering out toxic substances and bacteria.
- Wetlands fight climate change by safely storing huge amounts of carbon.
We need to work together to stop the destruction and help wetlands flourish.
Why Give Now?
It’s not too late to save our wetlands. A gift of just $24.20 is enough to fund the restoration of one square metre of wetland—and that’s just the beginning.
One square metre of wetland might not sound like much, but when you consider the diversity of life it can support and the other benefits it will provide, it’s an incredible investment.
