World Wetlands Day

Tuesday, 2 February 2021 - 9:30am to 10:00am
World Wetlands Day

50 years ago today, an international treaty for the protection and sustainable use of wetlands came into effect. The RAMSAR convention was to protect wetlands of international significance, to support populations of migratory birds, endangered species, purify drinking water, and sink carbon. 

But how is Australia faring?

We catch up with Mel Gray from Healthy Rivers Dubbo to hear about the RAMSAR listed Macqualrie Marshes and the conditions of wetlands in the Murray Darling.
