Over 20 million hectares of wetlands across Canada have been lost due to agriculture, harbour facilities, manufacturing plants, garbage dumps, warehouses, roads, airports, residential development, hydroelectric generation, utility rights of ways and shopping centers. Increasing pressures for dredging, draining and filling of wetlands continue to occur. Understanding and preserving these wetlands is as important for our future as it is to Canadian Wildlife. This book has over 200 photos on 160 pages, all in full color. Refuge areas include The George C. Reifel Waterfowl Refuge in Ladner BC, the Creton Valley Wildlife Management Area, and The Sackvill and Tintamarre National Wildlife Area, New Brunswick
