Without healthy wetlands, the otters will disappear
Do you care about the otters, eels, and kingfishers? Then, there is something you can do to protect them.
Europe's water sources are deteriorating at an alarming rate and freshwater ecosystems face many pressures. Rivers, lakes, wetlands, streams and groundwater are all protected under EU law - but industries and EU governments want to weaken the law.
Keeping water sources healthy through the Water Framework Directive is key to the success of several Sustainable Development Goals, in the EU and abroad. The directive also has an impact on water management globally, serving as a reference for legal frameworks governing water management in other countries.
This is your moment to tell the European Commission to keep its water law strong. Wetlands International - together with 100 other NGOs - calls for action. We have prepared the response that will best ensure that the law is kept safe. Will you sign too?
