Celebrating Irish Wetlands on World Wetlands Day


аEach year on the 2nd February many, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and groups of citizens at all levels of the community have acted to raise public awareness of wetland values and benefits in general and the Ramsar Convention which was signed in 1971.

National and local community organisations throughout Ireland participate by organising a host of different events throughout the country as part of #World Wetlands Day.

Even if you cannot make it to one of the organised events in person on World Wetlands Day, you can still ‘remotely visit’ and learn more about Ireland’s great wetland wealth by taking one of the story map tours that Wetland Surveys Ireland and Foss Environmental Consulting have prepared.
