World Wetlands Day 2004 -- Canada
Trisha Holland (Patricia.Holland@gnb.ca),Wetlands Stewardship Officer, Fish & Wildlife Branch, Dept. of Natural Resources, writes: "The Wetlands and Coastal Habitat Program of the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources celebrated World Wetlands Day in Fredericton on February 2nd. We had a display in our front lobby featuring New Brunswick's three Wetlands of International Importance as well as posters depicting the important functions of wetlands and information on our provincial Wetlands Conservation Policy (see photo). Various brochures were available to the public, but the hot items were the WWD 2004 stickers and 'Wetland It's Vital' magnets. A press release was also issued and can be viewed on the NB government website (http://www.gnb.ca/cnb/news/nre/2004e0081nr.htm)."
