A collection of 29 photos on the theme of wetlands will go on view at the Ramsar Grand Hotel on the sidelines of a conference on World Wetlands Day.

World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on February 2. This day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on February 2, 1971 in Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea. 

Since 1997, the Ramsar Secretariat provides outreach materials to help raise public awareness of wetlands in the world.

The Standing Committee of the convention approved “Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future” as the theme for World Wetlands Day in 2018.
