Abstract: The highest area of fresh water wetlands in the West Bengal is situated in the district of Maldah. Out of 23 larger wetlands of West Bengal 11 are located in this district. Maldah-wetlands are quite old and natural with good biodiversity and healthy ecosystem. These wetlands are the house of around 351 vascular plant species and several animal species like waterfowl, fishes, reptiles, amphibians, mollusks and numerous insects. The local people largely depend also on these wetlands for their sustenance. But several threats, mainly anthropogenic, are gradually destroying these important ecosystems since the last decade.
