12 key messages
Help us spread Ramsar messages
The Ramsar Convention used its anniversary year to continue bringing attention to the wonders of wetlands and the urgent need to protect them. We developed 12 key messages for you about Ramsar and wetlands to be shared from the 2nd February 2011 to January 2012.
What can you still do with these messages?
Our actions and messages are obviously not ending with our anniversary year. We hope you will continue to use them to take care of wetlands at the international, national and local level during the next 40 years at least! Make use of them to increase the visibility of the Convention and of your work.
