    World Wetlands Day 2 February

     What is World Wetlands Day? People across the Goulburn Broken region are urged to visit a local wetland to help celebrate World Wetlands Day. World Wetlands Day is celebrated internationally each year on 2 February and marks the anniversary of the Ramsar Convention signing in 1971. The international theme for World Wetlands Day 2012 is Wetlands and Tourism – a great experience. For more information on the Ramsar Convention and World Wetlands Day please visit the Ramsar website www.ramsar.org.   Wetlands in the Goulburn Broken Catchment Over 2000 wetlands have been recorded in the Goulburn Broken Catchment and are a unique part of the landscape. They include small alpine bogs, floodplain billabongs, River Red Gum forests, large open lakes and shallow seasonal swamps. Wetlands are among the most productive ecosystems on earth supporting distinctive plant and animal communities. Wetlands also perform many vital functions including water purification, erosion control, flood mitigation, nutrient recycling and groundwater recharge. Many wetlands in the Goulburn Broken region are also popular for tourism and recreational activities. These include Barmah National Park, Kinnairds Wetland, Tahbilk Lagoon, Winton Wetlands and Yea Wetlands.    World Wetlands Day Newsletter   So take the opportunity to get out and experience our wonderful wetlands.
