Wetlands, leisure and tourism – Share your story and pictures!


Have you been to a Ramsar Site this summer? Share your story and pictures on sustainable tourism with our Ramsar Community!

The Ramsar Convention Secretariat and UNWTO recently launched a publication that highlights the considerable value of wetlands for tourism and the economic benefits that sustainable tourism can bring for the management of wetland sites.

Go to the Ramsar Community page here to read more on sustainable tourism in wetlands and take a virtual tour by clicking on 14 case studies showcasing sustainable tourism in wetlands (13 of which are Ramsar Sites). These case studies have been selected to cover different wetland types around the world and to examine the diversity in the scale of tourism, the management processes in place, the many challenges encountered and, wherever possible, the management solutions employed.

By showing the beauty of wetlands you help to communicate their value.

The Ramsar Community page is supported by the Danone Fund for Water.
