Never previously used, the site containing the wetlands was initially intended for construction of another lake for fish within the existing system, but the plan eventually fell through. A later project involved setting up several wetland areas connected by a wooden footbridge. Part of this natural display includes a gazebo, which is ideal for relaxing in or hiding from the rain. Furthermore, there is a glade with information panels on the importance of such wetlands and the need to protect these sites of high biological value, which form habitats boasting the greatest biological activity and diversity after rain forests and coral reefs. Wetlands act as a refuge for many species of animals and plants, with many of them being directly dependent on them for their very existence. Examples from the animal kingdom include amphibians, as well as reptiles and numerous species of invertebrates.
Models of local amphibians in an exaggerated scale comprise the most striking part of the display. These models cover the frog, tree frog, toad, newt and salamander, in addition to four incarnations of reptiles native to this country - two lizards, a grass snake and blindworm.
