Wetlands & People: A Vital Connection

Wetlands & People: A Vital Connection


Wetlands & People: A Vital Connection is a short animated video, which captures the deep rootedness of wetlands in our lives, our souls and our history – and the way in which we humans increasingly threaten them.

By first capturing the diverse pleasures they offer to us in boating, agriculture and fishing, we then are rudely exposed to how we have devalued them and abused them. Cleverly rewinding from the video from this terrible fate, we are taken back through history to see just how this precious resource, Mediterranean coastal wetlands, enrich our environment and our lives.

As we say, Life begins in Wetlands. From Mesopotamia through the ages of Mediterranean history, the video captures the cultural heritage wetlands preserve. With the climate and biodiversity emergencies upon us, preserving and restoring wetlands offers us a critical element to begin to respond. Don’t let wetlands be wiped off your map!

The video is available in different langages, you need to activate the subtitles.
