HOW TO OBSERVE #WorldWetlandsDay

Many environmentalists and conservation groups hold events to draw attention to the importance of preserving and protecting the wetlands. Since 2015, Ramsar Convention on Wetlands hosts a Wetlands Youth Photo Contest encouraging young people’s involvement in the day.

To participate:

  • Learn more about wetlands and their importance
  • Research wetlands around the world including the Everglades in Florida, Carmargue in France, and Wasur National Park in New Guinea
  • Donate to conservation groups, such as The Wetlands Initiative
  • Discuss with others what can be done to preserve and protect the wetlands
  • Visit the World Wetlands Day website for more information

While you’re celebrating, be sure to invite someone to join you. Use #WorldWetlandsDay to share your experience on social media.
