World Wetlands Day Today

World Wetlands Day is celebrated internationally each year on 2 February. It marks the anniversary of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Convention) in Ramsar, Iran, on 2 February 1971. Celebrations on this day take many forms, including talks, photo and art exhibitions, nature walks, festivals, announcement of new Ramsar sites, media stories and wetland working bees.

Some of our best known wetlands include Panboola, Penuca Swamp, Wallagoot Lake, Bondi Lake, Kisses Lagoon and the salt marsh wetlands of Bermagui. Many of our less well known wetlands are on private land along our rivers or upland swamps higher in the catchment.
