Today Biologic is celebrating World Wetlands Day, which commemorates the signing of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (the Ramsar Convention). This year marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Convention, on 2 February 1971 in Ramsar, Iran.

 

The theme for this year is ‘Wetlands and Water’, which calls attention to the role of wetlands as important habitats and ecosystems, that provide clean water and biodiversity.

 

Some notable WA Ramsar wetlands include Roebuck bay in Broome, and the Lakes Argyle and Kununurra in the Kimberley.
