A filmmaker, her students and community partners create a multi-platform documentary and study guide to teach swamp literacy and care through a trip into the Everglades.
Petroleum exploration in Alberta has disturbed more than 1,900 sq. km of wetlands in Alberta, boosting emissions of methane: a potent greenhouse gas.
As climate change threatens to bring more sudden rainstorms, we need to rethink the way we manage water.
It's been years in the making, but Adani's controversial Queensland coal mine is finally shovel-ready. Yet significant scientific questions remain, such as the impact on the region's aquifers.
Federal and state agencies are carrying out a 35-year, multi-billion-dollar plan to restore Florida's Everglades, but have not factored sea level rise or other climate change impacts into their plans.
With partnerships between landowners, the government and businesses, South Africa can invest in its wetlands and boost the country's potable water reserves.
Far more megafauna species use coastal wetlands than we thought. And it affects the way we need to address the extinction crisis.
Phragmites australis, an invasive reed, has taken over wetlands across the US. But it also stabilizes shorelines and harbors many fish and birds. Is it time to compromise with this alien?
One surprising potential benefit of sea-level rise is it helps coastal wetlands store more carbon.
Wetlands are disappearing rapidly - but new data and technologies are revolutionising our knowledge.
It's time for farmers to embrace the wetland instead of draining it.
Rising sea levels won't be solved by trying to fix the coast in place. For a defence from coastal flooding, we need to step back.
Marshes, swamps and other kinds of wetlands provide valuable services, such as effective natural flood control. But they are being destroyed for development in many parts of the world.
The Trump administration wants to end federal protection under the Clean Water Act for many small streams and wetlands. But as a geoscientist explains, these are critical parts of large river systems.
Agriculture and the environment don't need to be at odds with each other. They are more closely interdependent than we realize.
Mass fish deaths are a blaring warning sign for the heath of the Murray Darling Basin, but just as worrying is the sight of dry areas in the Darling.
Smart roads in Africa could help reduce the impact of flooding and other disasters that affect rural communities.
Wetlands in Australia are often dry. They may look unassuming but it's a vital part of their vibrant lifecycle.
Coastal development is destroying marshes, mangroves and other wetlands that provide valuable protection from hurricanes and storms. Research shows these benefits can be worth millions of dollars.
Wetlands are some of the world's most undervalued weapons against climate change. They store huge quantities of carbon – but without better protection, many could soon be drained or paved over.
