A wetland is an area that is soaked in water or flooded. Wetlands are important because they help the environment by cleaning out toxins and waste. Wetlands can have clean water or they can be a swamp. Sometimes they can be a large area and some wetlands may be smaller. A wetland is part of an ecosystem that has many different living organisms. There can be many different animals in the water. Wetlands have shelters for animals which can include baby shrimp, oysters, and fish. If you are lucky you can even see an alligator in some wetlands.
I chose this article because recently I had gone to a wetland in Florida. I went on an airboat ride through the wetlands. I saw many alligators, birds, and fish. I enjoyed seeing all of these animals. When I saw the title of this article, I knew I was going to choose it because I had been to one, and I wanted to learn more about it.
