Why celebrate World Wetlands Day?

World Wetlands Day is an opportunity to remember the vital role wetlands play in the environment and human wellbeing. It is also an opportunity to raise public awareness about the need to conserve and sustainably manage wetlands. In addition, it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the beauty and biodiversity of wetlands. Lastly, World Wetlands Day promotes the importance of conserving these unique ecosystems for present and future generations.
