Wetland Plants and Animals

Wetlands support an amazing diversity of plants and animals. Almost half of Oregon's over 450 species birds live part or most of the time in and around wetlands. Extensive information on wetlands species has been and is being developed, and will be appearing on this portal. It includes information about wildlife uses of wetlands, at-risk wetland species, wetland species conservation, invasive species which currently impact Oregon's wetlands and those which might be on their way. And it includes detailed species accounts for all vertebrates (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish) associated with wetlands.
