Getting Started

Navigating the Wetland Atlas

Main Menu

The main menu is accessed through the hamburger menu in the "bookmark" on the left-hand side of the page. This report is divided into 5 chapters. From this menu, you can access each of the main chapters and their sub-sections from anywhere in the report.

Tip: The down arrowhead expands when you are viewing a Chapter within the hamburger menu. You can quickly navigate to any Section within a Chapter by making a selection from the expanded menu.

The "page turner" arrows at the bottom left of your screen will sequentially take you through the Wetland Atlas, page by page. For example, press the right arrow to move from Section 2.1 to Section 2.2.


Tip: If you’re interested in the full report, we encourage you to start with the Introduction found in Chapter 1, and use the page turner function (arrows on the bottom left of the page) to sequentially navigate through the Atlas.


This icon on the left menu is your guide on how to navigate the Wetland Atlas. You can access this at any time without leaving the page you’re on.
