World Wetlands Day 2002: Greece


Hans Jerrentrup (, Director of the Society for Protection of Nature and Ecodevelopment (EPO), writes: "EPO is an NGO working since 14 years in the area of Northeastern Greece on wetland conservation and management, maybe you have even heard of our activities. Recently we have been involved in a EU LIFE Environment Project in collaboration with the Global Nature Fund and its Living Lakes Network, where we are also partner with the Nestos Delta (Lakes and Lagoons). In the course of our projects and especially the public awareness work, we are planning a large event for the celebration of the WWD and later in March again we will organize several meetings with stakeholders of the area. It would be therefore very useful if you could still mail us a series of the beautiful Ramsar Poster Exhibit, as well as some more stickers and the Functions and Values package. By the way Tobias Salathé is an external adviser to our project."
