Wetlands are part of Ontario’s watersheds, connecting across the province in a natural mosaic that sustains plants, animals and people alike. To drain or degrade wetlands here and there is like chipping a hole in the collective water pipe that sustains all of us.
Almost every living creature depends on water. Without clean water, communities face declining health and opportunity. Picture the Ontario that you want to live in. Now picture this beautiful province without the living things that need clean water to function or live. Pollution, climate change and competing land uses are affecting forests, wetlands, lakes and streams. Wetlands are a natural solution.
