New dynamic and interactive tools to showcase Ramsar Sites!

A new attractive and interactive way of presenting the data of the List of Wetlands of International Importance has recently been added to the Ramsar Sites Information Service.


Dynamic maps showing the number and surface area of Ramsar Sites by country, the countries that have ratified the Convention or the growth in number of Contracting Parties since 1971 are now available online. Would you like to display data for a specific region only? It’s up to you! The information you need is just a few clicks away.

Maps are not the only uses of this new tool. You can also access interactive charts showing, for example, the best represented types of wetlands in the Ramsar List and which ones are missing, or which is the most-used criterion in Europe to designate wetlands as sites of international importance. Are you interested in comparing results in North America and South America? Find out the answers to these questions and many more by clicking here.

Visit the Ramsar Sites Information Service and discover these new tools now!
