Valuable Wetlands are Fast Disappearing


Abstract:
The public is slow in awakening to the value of wetlands. These coastal saltwater marshes are among the state's most important natural resources. Once they are lost, they are irreplaceable. Already many wetlands have been converted to housing developments, marinas, dumps, and other manmade structures. Taormina discusses wetlands for their importance in marine and wildlife habitats, erosion control, education, and psychological value.
