Floods, carbon, ducks and trails: Quantifying and communicating wetland ecosystem services in Atlantic Canada

March 23, 2021 – 11:00am(PDT/PST)

Cape Breton bog and hiking trail

Location: online webinar

Presented by Emma Bocking, Ducks Unlimited Canada

Rapid functional assessment tools like WESP (Wetland Ecosystem Services Protocol) give the ability to quantify

several wetland functions and benefits, such as water storage, carbon sequestration and public use. The next step is to communicate the value of these functions to different stakeholders. Using examples from DUC’s work in Atlantic Canada, we’ll explore the use of WESP in a land-use planning context, the need to prioritize the conservation of wetland sites based on stakeholder preference; and how to communicate wetland ecosystem services to project partners and the public.
