Wetland loss is a major environmental problem on the prairies, and this loss is impacting water quality and flooding, which was widespread across much of the prairies during the spring and summer of 2011. Wetlands: The Drain Game, a 30-minute documentary, sheds light on those issues, explores economic impacts, and examines how wetland drainage affects all residents of the prairie region. Most importantly, the documentary looks at what is needed to protect these important ecosystems.
Ducks Unlimited Canada and Prairie Public Broadcasting collaborated on Wetlands: The Drain Game to help create awareness around the issue of wetlands drainage.
