Help Spread Awareness of Wetland Conservation on World Wetlands Day, February 2!

Each year, World Wetlands Day is observed on February 2nd in an effort to raise awareness of wetland conservation. Today is also the anniversary of the Convention on Wetlands, which was adopted as an international treaty in 1971.

This year’s celebration of World Wetlands Day in 2022 is especially exciting because of the adoption by the UN General Assembly of Resolution 75/317 that established February 2nd as World Wetlands Day!
