Thank you for sharing this! I did not know about world wetlands day. How appropriate that the day to celebrate wetlands which are the world’s nurseries falls on Imbolc the holiday to celebrate the spark of life yet hidden, that will expand and be fully born into the world in Spring.
And happy early World Wetlands Day!It’s hard not to be passionate about the celebration of such an event, since all of what you see here —the unique landscapes and its wonderful critters — are dependent on wetland ecosystems. Officially February 2, World Wetlands Day is an international celebration of the planet’s marshes, swamps, and bogs. It marks the anniversary of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands, called the Ramsar Convention, on February 2, 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar. World Wetlands Day was first celebrated in 1997, and since then government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and citizens all over the world have aimed to raise public awareness of the critical value and intrinsic benefits of wetland ecosystems.
