Coastal wetlands need help
Seagrass meadows, mangrove forests and saltmarshes support rich biodiversity, underpin human livelihoods and protect coastal communities. Unfortunately, the size and value of these important places are being lost. Over 50% of coastal wetlands are already gone and the rest are at risk from a range of serious threats.
