The Toronto Zoo's Adopt-A-Pond Program is designed to help students and community groups understand wetlands and the importantance in conservation of these areas.
Through fun and interactive activities that can be enjoyed by all members of the family, a better understanding can be gained of the role wetlands play in our ecosystems.
Wetlands are a "home" to many wildlife species, are a resting area for birds migrating north and south and protect human and wildlife health by filtering out pollutants annd contaminants from the water. (Doran B, 2011)
