Earth Protect celebrates World Wetlands Day

"Does your wetland need you?"

FROM THE EARTHPROTECT BLOG ROLLS
World and Nat’l Wetlands Day
The country joins in the global celebration of World Wetlands Day (WWD) today in commemoration of the day in 1971 when the Ramsar Convention, an international treaty for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands, was adopted in Ramsar City, Iran.

Fears over Wetland Development
Wildlife researchers are worried an internationally significant wetland near Hobart is being threatened by development. World Wetlands Day today marks the anniversary of the Ramsar Convention recognising sites of international importance for waterfowl. In Tasmania there are 10 Ramsar sites, but scientists are worried they are under threat. Unlike its mainland counterparts, the Tasmanian Government does not have a coastal policy to protect wetlands from things like predicted sea level rise.
