The Standing Committee of the Convention on Wetlands approved the themes for World Wetlands Day as follows:
World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on 2 February. This day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea.
Since 1997, the Secretariat of the Convention on Wetlands has provided outreach materials to help raise public awareness about the importance and value of wetlands. Materials can be downloaded at www.worldwetlandsday.org
