World Wetlands Day 2004 -- Austria


Photos of World Wetlands Day events in Austria

10 February 2004

Dear Valerie, Dear Mireille! Please find enclosed a picture with our Minister Josef Proell (right), Mrs. Birgit Mair-Markart from Naturschutzbund Österreich (our CEPA NGO Focal Point) and me with the Ramsar flag from Gland - thanks again to you Valerie for your help! This was the day when our Minister presented the new Austrian five Ramsar Sites as well as the booklet "Ramsar in Österreich" (which I am holding in my hand on the photo).

There are two more photos from the press conference (30.1.2004) which is also described in the Ramsar Homepage under WWD 2004 reporting / Austria II.

Best Regards und Liebe Grüsse aus Wien!
