10 Things you can do to save our Wetlands!

Do your part to protect and preserve our fragile ecosystems.

Wetlands support a complex set of birdlife, animals, insects and reptiles, and are very sensitive to pollution. Here are 10 ways to save our wetlands:

1. Join programs that help protect and restore wetlands.

Contact your local, municipality, community groups, environmental organizations or a non-government organisation about activities in your area.

2. Report illegal activities.

Report illegal activity such as filling, clearing, or dumping in wetlands to government authorities.

3. Pick up all litter and dispose in appropriate trash containers.

Also, keep surfaces that wash into storm drains clean of pet faeces, toxic chemicals, fertilizers, and motor oil, which eventually wash into our wetlands, polluting them.

4. Plant local tree species!

Plant only local species of trees, shrubs and flowers to keep the ecological balance of local wetlands.

5. Use “living shoreline” techniques to stabilize the soil.

If you make use of waterfront property with a shoreline or riverbank, use “living shoreline” techniques to stabilize the soil - a mix of plant roots, sand and stone instead of man-made structures. 

6. Avoid wetlands if you are expanding your home or installing a shed.

7. Use phosphate-free laundry and dishwasher detergents.

Phosphates help algae grow, which can suffocate aquatic life.

8. Use paper and recycled products made from unbleached paper.

Use paper and recycled products made from unbleached paper. Bleached paper contains toxic chemicals that can contaminate water.

9. Use non-toxic products for household cleaning.

Use non-toxic products for household cleaning, lawn and garden care. Never spray lawn or garden chemicals on a windy or rainy day, as they will wash into the waterways.

10. Reduce, reuse and recycle household items and waste.
