This blog was written by another summer 2020 intern, Ha Do, a Vietnamese student fellow from Duke University. Ha was a really cool intern with an analytical mind. She loved wetland forests and really reflected it in her writing. While SEO was not a primary focus of 2020 articles, it still turned into a great resource that we re-use during special times of the year like on World Wetlands Day (Feb 2) or during American Wetlands Month (May).
Post Excerpt: When I was a schoolgirl in Vietnam, wetland forests for me were a negligible part of my adventures to national parks or on the way to beaches with my family. I used to think that wetland forests, hundreds of miles away from where I live, had little to nothing to do with my life. But when starting my career and studying environmental science, I knew that I had failed to realize the role of wetland forests. In fact, wetland forests, wherever I am and whether I appreciate it or not, always and diligently provide their valuable services to my life.
