Wetlands around the world are very important but sadly under-appreciated. I was surprised to learn from my guest that Lagos State, Nigeria has not less than 10 wetlands. This episode of the Climate Talk Podcast is particularly focused on protecting wetlands, you would also find out:
– Difference between wetlands and mangroves
