Over 50% of the Mediterranean population live in coastal areas and yet over the last 100 years we’ve lost more than half of our Coastal Wetlands due to unsustainable development tourism and climate change.
During the last 40 years our consumption of natural resources has tripled. Without changing our approach to how we manage development in Coastal Wetland areas, these natural wonders will be wiped off the map. Unsustainable development is not progress; it is as damaging to human life as it is to nature.
It’s time for each of us to see Coastal Wetlands for the rich natural resource they are and consciously put them back on our maps of responsibility, before they are lost forever. We must not let them be forgotten; the ecosystems in our wetlands are the pulse of life on Earth.
