Wetlands are some of the most exciting places to look for wildlife. Wetlands provide ample food for animals and for people as well. They also perform many other services for us. Wetlands filter out pollution. They slow flooding. They recharge aquifers sending water back into the ground. I have spent a great deal of time photographing and studying wetlands and am writing books on this topic now.
