Wetland birds are birds that depend on wetlands for survival. They can be separated into endangered and abundant species. The protection of wetland birds has become a critical topic, as pollution, habitat loss and changes to food sources are major factors leading to some extinctions. This review reveals that the endangered group of species has slower rates of reproduction. The best way to protect this group from extinction is to reduce the rate of loss of wetland habitats. In addition, degradation of wetlands must stop by reducing the use of pesticides and fertilizers.
