Our Mission

The mission of the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS) is to promote understanding, conservation, protection, restoration, science-based management, and sustainability of wetlands.

Wetlands are incredibly important ecosystems that prevent floods, remove contaminants from water, provide habitat for a plethora of wildlife, and preserve water resources.  Unfortunately, over 50% of the world's wetlands have been lost since the 1970s, mostly due to human activity and development.  Therefore, it is imperative that we take action now to protect and understand the wetlands that are still around, restore wetlands that have been lost, build new ones, and educate the world about their importance.  

That is exactly what the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS) strives to do everyday.  We are an international, non-profit organization composed of over 3,000 members from over 60 countries who are dedicated to the study and stewardship of these incredible ecosystems.  

Now, more than ever, we need your support!  If you are interested in doing everything you can to protect our environment, not only for the sake of wetlands, but also for the sake of future generations of humans and organisms who depend upon water resources, then please contribute to our campaigns below.  Thank you for your passion and support!
