The Wetlands Initaitve is dedicated to restoring the wetland resources of the Midwest to improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat and biodiversity, and reduce flood damages. Our vision is simple: Wetlands should be more valuable wet than dry. For years, many believed that wetlands were more valuable dry than wet. In Illinois, nearly 90% of the wetlands present 200 years ago are now drained, tiled, dammed, or leveed. Today, the value of wetlands needs to be understood in both environmental and economic terms. Wetlands remove pollutants and control sediments to provide cleaner water. They offer food and shelter to a vast array of plants and animals. They store floodwaters to reduce the cost and misery from flooding. They moderate climate change by sequestering carbon. And, importantly - but often overlooked - their vital ecosystem services are essential for healthy economies. Our work seeks to bring those environmental and economic benefits to life. We combine two basic strategies: restore more wetlands and innovate fundamental changes in how we finance large-scale wetland restoration.
