“February. Only one more month of winter to go… In the meantime, may we suggest you hunker down and enjoy some leeks and savoy cabbage?”
2 February each year is World Wetlands Day.
What is World Wetlands Day?
This day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea. Each year since 1997, the Ramsar Secretariat has provided materials so that government agencies, non-governmental organizations, conservation organizations, and groups of citizens can help raise public awareness about the importance and value of wetlands.
