To know the importance of wetlands in terms of its relationship with consumers and the SDGs

Wetlands are transition zones between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, another characteristic of these ecosystems is the great variety of flora and fauna they harbour. A wetland has the capacity to support floating or submerged aquatic vegetation. In this way, they present one of the richest habitats on the planet for plants and animals. These ecosystems retain and store water available for human consumption, production and sustaining the life that resides in them, as well as filtering toxins and chemicals from water bodies. Caring for wetlands is directly related to SDG 15, on the life of terrestrial ecosystems, also related to SDG 3 on health and well-being. As it is related to these SDGs, it can be understood that wetlands are vital for humans as a source of available drinking water as well as a natural filter for human health.
