Division has played a great role in ensuring that human impacts on the wetlands are reduced.

gazetting the wetlands and promotion of public awareness together with the involvement of

the public in the gazetting and management of wetlands. The results indicated that there is a

strong positive relationship between the role of WID towards wetland conservation and the

activities carried out on wetlands. This was revealed by the spearman’s rank correlation (r) of

0.88. Changes in the role of WID towards wetland conservation affect the activities carried

out on wetlands by 88%. This implies that wetland conservation is greatly promoted by the

roles played by WID. The report will therefore assist management of WID in improving on

the quality of its role in wetland conservation and management through use of the

recommendations and take them as guidelines to improve on the quality of its roles from the

researcher’s observations and respondents’ answers the following recommendations were

regarded as the best ways to improve on the quality of wetland conservation. These are; The

need to conduct more research on the species that exist in the wetlands and the extent of

human impact on these ecosystems, which activity degrades the ecosystems the more and the appropriate remedies to manage wetlands. The laws and regulations should be strengthened and implemented to ensure that the wetlands are less degraded in order to conserve the resources that exist in such ecosystems.
