This application allows you to select water features inside the study area and find out the economic value ranges for their ecosystems services. It's a different way of accounting for nature that attaches economic values to areas we've treated as 'free'.
Only 30 per cent of known services were able to be valued at this time, so this is an underestimate of the true value of these aquatic ecosystems.
Aquatic ecosystems give us clean drinking water, prevent flooding, stabilize the climate, provide a home for animals and plants and store and control the quality of water.
Find an area you know - it might be worth a lot more than you think.
