Wetlands are highly productive and important ecosystems that help in sustaining the environment and humans. However, anthropogenic pressures are posing a grave threat to these ecosystems. To mark the importance of wetlands globally, World Wetlands Day is celebrated each year, as an effort to raise awareness and promote conservation efforts, particularly at the community level.
