The complex interaction of their elements – water, soil, plants and animals fulfil many important functions and provide important ecological services. Wetlands are providers and users of water. They maintain their structure and functions, and they provide water for us and other animals and plants.
Wetlands mean wildlife
Wetlands mean water
Wetlands mean flood control
Wetlands mean climate change mitigation
Wetlands mean landscape
That’s it folks for another year!! Our aim for World Wetlands Day 2023 is that the Monaghan County Heritage Office will be able to host some “live” event on our wetlands for you to enjoy.
We hope our speakers have given you some interesting and valuable information about our wetlands.
And remember we need to VALUE, MANAGE, RESTORES and of course LOVE our Wetlands
World Wetlands Day is the ideal time to increase people’s understanding of these critically important ecosystems.
This is an urgent call to act. It is an appeal to invest financial, human and political capital in order to save the world’s wetlands from disappearing altogether — and to restore those we have already lost.
