The Wetlands

        Wetlands may be ponds, marshes, swamps, or peat bogs, each of which has its own characteristics. They act like giant sponges, soaking up rain and snowmelt and slowly release water in drier seasons, reducing flooding and easing the worst effects of drought.
    Wetlands are home for many fish, birds, and other animals. Without wetlands, some wildlife species would disappear. Wetlands are being destroyed across the country by industry, agriculture, and our appetite for land development.
