Every year on February 2nd World Wetlands Day is celebrated.
It marks the adoption of the Ramsar Convention in Iran in 1971.
Currently there are 2,243 Ramsar sites world wide covering a total surface area of 216,338,080 ha, this is an area slightly larger than Mexico !
This year we will be celebrating World Wetland Day on Saturday February 3 at Travis.
Details for this years walk have not been finalised yet but currently we plan to meet at the Education Center (behind the Beach Rd carpark) at 9:30 am.
We will then go and have a look at the Matai / Totara area with Colin Meurk as a guide.
Please check back after January 24 for finalised times.
