Wetlands Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. Credit: USFWS. Wetlands provide a multitude of ecological, economic and social benefits. They provide habitat for fish, wildlife and plants - many of which have a commercial or recreational value - recharge groundwater, reduce flooding, provide clean drinking water, offer food and fiber, and support cultural and recreational activities. Wetlands have functional values that may extend beyond traditional real estate values. This paper uses contingent valuation and ecological field assessments to place heterogeneous values on heterogeneous wetlands. Wetland functions evaluated are water quality, habitat, recreation, storing floodwaters and erosion abatement.

As these and many other wetland functions and values described below have become more widely known, wetlands are increasingly seen as productive and valuable resources worthy of protection and restoration.

wetlands are all forms of man-made urban wetlands, that serve recreational, and purification purposes, as well as being habitat for flora and fauna. All cities in Pakistan have urban wetlands, which are often overlooked, but important locally.

Near the coast around Karachi, salt extraction creates saline ponds attracting certain bird species. "While wetland functions are natural processes of wetlands that continue regardless of their perceived value to humans, the value people place on those functions in many cases is the primary factor determining whether a Valuing the recreational uses of Pakistans wetlands book remains intact or is converted for some other use" (National Audubon Society, ).
