Wetlands International is the only global non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of wetlands. We are deeply concerned about the loss and degradation of wetlands such as lakes, swamps and rivers. Our vision is a world where wetlands are valued and conserved for their beauty, the life they support, and the resources they provide. Wetlands International is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of wetlands - both for their ecological value and for the services they provide to society. We work with our network of offices, partners and experts to achieve our goals. Most of our work is funded on a project basis by both government and private donors. We are also supported by government and NGO members.
