Celebrating World Wetlands Day

Community Welcome at World Wetlands Day Event

World Wetlands Day will be held on Friday the 2nd February 2018. The annual event celebrates the signing of the international Convention on Wetlands in the Iranian city of Ramsar on this date in 1971. Australia was the first signatory to the convention and continues to play a leading role by conserving wetlands around the country.

Along with our partners, Conservation Volunteers Australia is hosting a World Wetlands Day Forum at the Hunter Wetlands Centre in Newcastle, NSW. There’s a great line-up of speakers and field activities, thanks to funding assistance from the NSW Environmental trust.
