Join the Ramsar Forum mailing list!

The Ramsar Forum is the public electronic mailing list of the Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar, Iran, 1971), which was begun in 1997 and is maintained by the Ramsar Convention Secretariat in Gland, Switzerland. There are presently more than 1,000 Forum members.

The purpose of the Ramsar Forum mailing list is to provide an e-mail mechanism for the exchange of news, announcements, and requests for information and advice on wetland- and Ramsar-related issues between any of the Forum's subscribers and all the others.

The Forum is open to all interested persons and is unmoderated, so that all posted messages go directly to all subscribers. Therefore, any facts or opinions contained in any posted messages should not be seen as representing the opinions of the Ramsar Secretariat or the Contracting Parties or as facts whose accuracy is guaranteed by them.
