If you think that deserts and wetlands are mutually exclusive, you should check out this drone video from the Mexican state of Coahuila by k2team.mty.  It was filmed in the Cuatro Ciénegas Biosphere Reserve, a wetland area within the vast Chihuahuan desert that covers much of northern Mexico and parts of the Southwestern USA and west Texas.  Home to over 150 endemic species of flora and fauna, the reserve's lifeforms and their adaptation to this unique environment are being studied to assess the possibility of life on Mars.  

Florida's Salt Marshes


Salt Marshes ~ Florida 2018


The interior of Florida was once almost entirely covered in wetlands and marshes.  In fact, much of the interior of the southern part of the state was uninhabitable until relatively recently due to the problems of mosquito-borne infections.  Effective insect control and air conditioning solved one problem but created another - the wetlands have shrunk alarmingly due to population pressure.  In this video, PeterBloch gives us an aerial view of some salt marshlands near Tampa, in the west-central part of the Sunshine State.
