Although the range of options and approaches to wetland management vary widely, the majority of activities fall into one of the following categories - water management, habitat management, species management, creation of zones, and the management of the multiple values of the site.
Preparedness for and responses to emergency situations (e.g. flooding, fire, disease outbreak) are another important component of management activities.
Guidance on how to implement management activities can be found at pages 37-44 of Wetlands Management Planning: A guide for Site Managers (the full document below)
