World Wetlands Day 2004 -- Croatia


World Wetlands Day 2004 in at the State Institute for Nature Protection

Dear Ms Higgins, I want to thank you very much for materials you sent us for celebrating the World Wetlands Day 2004. I am glad to inform you that our newly established institution in Croatia, the State Institute for Nature Protection, also participated in celebration of this significant date.

On January 30, the State Institute for Nature Protection organised the public event dedicated to celebration of the World Wetland Day 2002. On this occasion the issues of Ramsar Convention, WWD, Ramsar sites, as well as diversity of wetlands in Croatia ranging 'from mountains to the sea' have been in the focus. Besides several presentations, the short film, poster and leaflet celebrating WWD have been presented. Representatives of the press, relevant Ministries, scientific and other relevant institutions, as well as NGO's have been present on this occasion. The poster and leaflet have been widely distributed, especially to schools. The short report from the event was shown on TV. On February 2nd, Mr Davorin Markovic, director of the State Institute, was a guest in Radio show and presented the issue of the WWD and Ramsar Convention.

We send you copies of our poster and leaflet by regular post.

Please find attached some pictures from our event, as well as pictures of our poster and all 6 pages of our leaflet. I would be grateful if you could put these materials on the Ramsar web pages.
