New Report Shows U.S. Wetland Losses Accelerating – Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.

In essence, from 1998 to 2004 there was a net gain of 32,000 wetland acres per year. From 2004 to 2009 there was a net loss of 13,800 acres per year. Troubling figures for a country that’s looking to save more money by cutting funding for wetland conservation. What this means is that more of us in DU and other conservation groups needs to pick up our game.
