Abstract

Wetlands across Britain provide enormous benefits to people and wildlife. They support a huge range of biodiversity, including resident and migratory wildlife, and generate significant benefits to the people who work and live in them. Recreational visitors enjoy their landscapes and opportunities for encounters with wild nature, and wider communities gain, too, due to the diverse ecosystem services that wetlands provide. For instance, wetlands can protect distant communities against the impact of climate change by absorbing flood waters from sea levels rise and extreme weather events. It was with a view to understanding these benefits that the WetlandLIFE project (www.wetlandlife.org) set out to explore the values associated with wetlands, focusing on wetland sites in England.
