Intended audience
  • Wetland habitats are full of wildlife. They help control flooding and absorb greenhouse gases that are making the atmosphere of the Earth hotter. However, half the world's wetlands have been destroyed over the last one hundred years, mostly through human activity and climate change. This fascinating book uses case studies to explore the causes and effects of the destruction of our wetlands and the ways in which people can reduce their impact on these vital habitats
