DO GOOD World Wetlands Day

I have many mantras, but one of the most important is one that sticks with me in every part of my life: "Doing Good is a Beautiful Thing."

And it is a beautiful thing. In 2012, I wanted to share more with you about how you can do good in the world and for the world. Today is World Wetlands Day and though you may not have celebrated it last year, I hope you take a moment to consider how important this ecosystem is. The planet's wetlands not only hold an abundance of plant and animal life, but it's estimated that three million people die a year when wetland destruction prohibits access to clean drinking water!

DO GOOD
Donate, volunteer and follow America's Wetland Foundation, which protects and preserves coastal areas threatened by environmental damage.

Explore the EPA's site about Wetlands Protection to educate yourself on the issue. 

Outside of the U.S.? Ramsar is a great resource for wetlands preservation globally.
