World Wetlands Day

January 31, 2017

Wetlands are often overlooked but provide a multitude of benefits to our environment. Like kidneys, they absorb, filter and recirculate our water and reduce erosion. They also provide critical habitat to amphibians, beavers, bats, birds, fish and other wildlife.

Learn more about the benefits of these great water ways from the Wetlands Conservancy and how you can celebrate and support them from the Oregon Zoo.
