Wetland restoration rehabilitates a degraded wetland or reestablishes a wetland that has been destroyed. Restoration takes place on land that has been, or still is, a wetland.

Today, America's natural wetland forests exist in pockets, covering just a fraction of their former range. However, even in their depleted state, they provide crucial services. These highly biodiverse ecosystems are some of the most carbon-rich in the country, serving as a buffer against climate change.

Wetlands aide in wildlife habitat, flood control, and water quality. These areas also allow species possibly facing extinction an environment to flourish. How do I know if my property contains wetlands. A good starting place for wetland determination is the Wetlands Mapper, on the U.S.

39). Wetlands serve many purposes and are considered one of the most productive natural systems in the. Wetlands are transitional areas, sandwiched between permanently flooded deepwater environments and well-drained uplands, where the water table is usually at or near the surface or the land is covered by shallow water.

A study by the Pew Center on Global Climate Change found that as air temperatures rise, so do water. Based on studies by local authorities, we believe that far more than five acres of wetlands will be destroyed by the campsites. Recognizing that it is too late to prevent the destruction in the campground area, we call upon Provo City to provide lands to replace the wildlife habitat that will be lost in the campground construction.

Nutria is an invasive species in Southern Louisiana. Exotic animals like the nutria, a large semi-aquatic rodent native to South America, can damage wetlands.
