At Last: "Wetlands" in Other Languages
(posted to the Ramsar Forum, 4 May 2004)
Many thanks to everyone for your interesting and informative responses to "wetlands" in other languages! So far, the compiled list contains about 50 different languages from all over the globe, and we have just added it to Environmental Concern's website at http://wetland.org/educ_world.htm - so please, take a look! (Also, if you find any inaccuracies or have words & languages that you would like to add, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will continue to update the list.)
For those of you that may not have heard of Environmental Concern before this project, I have included below more information about us and what we do. Though we are located in a small town on the east coast of the United States, we seek opportunities to provide wetland education throughout the world. You can learn more about us at www.wetland.org, but please feel free to contact me if you are interested in partnering with Environmental Concern to enhance wetland education at your location. Best wishes with all of your wetland endeavors-
