Wetlands Day - 02 February 2017

Dyer Island Conservation Trust

The DEEP BLUE celebrated wetlands day by attending a presentation, raising awareness and the importance of wetlands in our lives. With a recap on the recent floods it was so easy for the kids to understand that if wetlands are not conserved, we will all suffer from extreme weather conditions. Should we keep our wetlands healthy, we will be minimising or reducing the risk of disaster, reduce poverty and promote sustainable use of ecosystems.

We ended up the lesson with creating our own wetland demonstrating how wetlands help with absorbing, filtering and purifying rain or storm water and release it to the water bodies for our benefit. The kids said they will start telling their families to protect the wetlands because if wetlands disappear, they will also disappear.
