What Happens In Wetlands While We Sleep?
Summer nights in Alabama are hot and sticky and our wetlands are teeming with activity. Frogs and toads that hide during the day come out to call for mates and lay eggs. The females will select the males with the most energetic calls. Beavers are toiling on their lodges, voles and mice are scurrying around picking up insects near the water. It's a world of stealthy hunting and loud breeding.
Alabama has 3.6 million acres of freshwater wetlands across the state. It is home to some of the most biologically diverse freshwater systems in the world.
Wetlands are worth protecting. #nocturnalecology
