World Wetlands Day 2019

Wetlands provide a multitude of benefits to our environment. Like kidneys, these incredible ecosystems 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 their benefits from the Wetlands Explorer and find ways to celebrate and support them with the Oregon Zoo.

You can also celebrate with a visit to local wetlands:
