World Wetlands Day in Brazil


Ministério do Meio Ambiente

We´ve produced 20,000 stickers; 2,000 posters and 200 DVDs. The DVD (which is in its final stage of production) will contain the flash animation (translated into Portuguese) and the translated leaflet. We´ve customized the leaflet, changing the international study cases in the boxes to Brazilian cases. The materials were sent to: all 27 regional offices (one per Brazilian state) of the implementing national environmental agency - IBAMA, to all 27 state environmental authorities, local and international NGOs (WWF, TNC and CI), Ramsar sites, National Wetland Committee members and fishermen representatives organizations. Together with the material we´ve added an official letter explaining all about WWD, this year´s motto, also explaining that the Ministry will be using it as a year-round campaign and asking for collaboration. I´m attaching some pictures of the WWD commemoration where we´ve displayed the video, material, etc. at the Ministry and IBAMA main entrance.
