Opportunities Wetlands provide habitat and refuge for biodiversity, and help build resilience of species to protect them from population decline. There are a number of ways which community-level wetland projects can contribute to national biodiversity outcomes, including: Using citizen science to improve our knowledge of wetland species: Monitoring the distribution and activities of waterbirds in Australia is difficult due to the variable climate and vast area of the continent.
This has limited our capacity to measure trends and establish the most critical threats for each region. However, there are opportunities for community and non-government organisations to make a contribution. Citizen science is gaining traction as a viable supplementary means of obtaining ecological data that complements scientific monitoring and research processes and could help to fill current research and knowledge gaps.
BirdLife Australia, FrogWatch and WaterWatch all offer citizen science activities, and many private sector projects include monitoring of biodiversity as part of approval and reporting requirements. The Atlas of Living Australia provides resources and tools for biodiversity projects. Building community support for wetlands projects through partnership models: Partnerships between wetland education centres and tourism operators can increase local community and visitor awareness of the significance of Ramsar sites and their importance for migratory birds and other wildlife.
Being aware of the business risks of wetland and biodiversity decline and taking action to manage risk and implement sustainability measures: For example, housing developments across Australia are increasingly integrating natural or constructed wetlands into their design, in order to provide flood protection, natural filtering and cleansing of stormwater. The Swedish national wetland inventory VMI is one of the world's most extensive systematic inventories of nature types that has ever been done.

VMI has surveyed the wetlands of Sweden below the alpine region during a year period. The aim of the survey has been to increase the general knowledge of wetlands in Sweden, as a basis for environmental monitoring and natural resources planning.

By investigating the impact of human activities on wetlands and identifying the most valuable wetlands, their values can be preserved for future generations. The results from the inventory were also meant to function as background data for the authorities' decisions concerning e.
The US wetland conservation efforts are rooted partly in legislative requirements specifying that when a proposal is made to drain or fill a wetland, the proposers in many cases must offset the loss by restoring or constructing wetlands nearby that are of the same or greater size and levels of function. Several states within the US have additional requirements that must be met when wetland alteration is proposed. In addition, several federal programs provide financial incentives for wetland protection to private individuals whose land contains wetlands not completely protected by federal or state laws.
A restoration project by the State of Florida in the Everglades acquired U. Sugar Corporation land allowing for water delivery, water treatment, and water storage of sufficient quantity and quality to mimic the Everglades' natural system.
