Someone once said that

"wetlands are boggy, smelly stretches of land that breed hordes of mosquitos. They should be drained, they should be ploughed, they should be filled and then planted with "decent" flowers or better still build a road upon them, oh yes! they can also be used to take the populations discarded rubbish". (Moron circa 1067 BC)

No! noways! No! noways!
