World Wetlands Day

The 2nd of February is an important date for all you environmentally conscious. It marks the day the Convention on Wetlands was adopted in the city of Ramsar in Iran in 1971 and has been celebrated ever since. 

On World Wetlands Day, join an event to learn more about saving the world's wetlands, which have been destroyed because of overpopulation and construction. Or take action and go directly to your local wetland and help clean the area.

Why Celebrate World Wetlands Day

Of the 55 wetlands that are recognized by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, 13 overlap with UNESCO World Heritage sites and biosphere reserves. These are significant for biodiversity and to the planet's climate.

The international eco-friendly holiday raises awareness of the important water resources that wetlands provide. They are elaborate ecosystems that provide many benefits like flood control, water quality preservation, and are nurseries for fish and other freshwater or marine animals. If you're passionate about saving the planet, don't forget to celebrate World Wetlands Day.
