Have you ever imagined if our earth is all dry: without any form of wetness at all? What do you think would have happened to everyone including plants and animals? Would we have been in existence in the first place? Well, your guess is as good as mine. What is a Wetland? A Wetland is a place where the surface area is covered with water (which could be salt water, fresh water or even a mixture of the two). Wetlands could be permanent or temporary We know That 70% of the total landmass of the earth is covered by water but this is not equally distributed hence the lack of wetlands in certain areas and the loss of its huge benefit to the host environment.
