Wetland area is a valuable ecosystem providing food and livelihoods to organism, supporting rich biodiversity, and storing more carbon than any other ecosystems. Many wet land areas in the world are currently threated by human activities. As the University values conservation of the University ecosystem, wetland areas are conserved for mitigating drought and flooding events, water supply, and recreation area. Salaya campus has been covered by 36.4% of water body besides forest and planted vegetation. Many wetland areas in the University such as ponds, artificial canals, and irrigation canals are conserved and protected to be a habitat for at least 54 species of aquatic plants.
