Why Wetlands?

This video has been produced for Why Wetlands? A Multimedia Approach which is an investigative look into wetlands through multimedia and environmental inquiry.  This program includes a video, in-class materials and field trip to Terra Cotta Conservation Area, and was sponsored by Wildlife Habitat Canada.

Since 1985, Wildlife Habitat Canada, a national, non-profit, charitable conservation organization, has invested over $50 million supporting more than 1,500 conservation projects across Canada, through its granting program. Funds invested to support grants come from the purchase of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp. The Stamp is purchased primarily by waterfowl hunters to validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits.

Wildlife Habitat Canada works through partnerships with communities, landowners, governments, non-government organizations, and industry to conserve, enhance, and restore wildlife habitat. To learn more about the projects that Wildlife Habitat Canada has funded, please visit
