Perhaps our best known group of birds, waterfowl species such as ducks, geese and swans have webbed feet and water repellent feathers that allow them to float and swim easily. Often striking in plumage, waterfowl are found in a variety of watery habitats from the arctic to the tropics. Dabbling ducks tip tail-up in the water to feed and can spring directly into flight. Diving ducks dive deep in search of food and must run across the water surface to take flight.

Wetlands are Valuable

Far from being scary or worthless places, wetlands are wonderful.

We know now that wetlands are a vital link in the natural system that supplies the water which sustains all life.

Wetlands are Important in Many Ways.

Wetlands lessen the destructive effects of storms and floods.

Wetlands cleanse water of pollutants.

Wetlands recharge groundwater supplies.

Wetlands provide homes for many kinds of wildlife.

Wetlands are beautiful laces for people to enjoy being outdoors.

Going, Going, Gone?

Every year, we lose another two percent of the remaining wetlands in the United States - an astonishing 290,000 acres - to agriculture, development, mining, and other purposes.
