List of Ramsar wetlands of international importance

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the List of Wetlands of International Importance as defined by the Ramsar Convention for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands, recognizing the fundamental ecological functions of wetlands and their economic, cultural, scientific, and recreational value.[1][2]

The Convention establishes that "wetlands should be selected for the list on account of their international significance in terms of ecology, botany, zoology, limnology or hydrology." Over the years, the Conference of the Contracting Parties has adopted more specific criteria interpreting the Convention text.

The complete list of Wetlands of International Importance is accessible from the Ramsar website: http://www.ramsar.org
