“For many of us, water simply flows from a faucet, and we think little about it beyond this point of contact. We have lost a sense of respect for the wild river, for the complex workings of a wetland, for the intricate web of life that water supports.” (Sandra Postel)… How about we start learning & caring right now?

9 Easy Squishy Rules

To observe when exploring wetland habitats

Roaming through estuaries, marshes, swamps, bogs, or any land that qualifies as a wetland is a very special experience. Here we are giving considerations and requirements specific to these unique habitats—too often underrated but nonetheless extremely rich and fragile. Luckily, a little wetlands etiquette goes a long way in preventing damage to these amazing places. Keep in mind that the general EwA Wildness Etiquette also applies to wetland habitats and wildlife.

Knowing is Caring: Learn before you go. Explore wetlands well prepared so as to minimize your impact, and maximize safety for anyone (wildlife included) as well as for the pleasure of everyone. Enjoy!


If you value wetlands, make it a point to visit them and take part in their conservation for future generations.
