TLM: World Wetlands Day 2013

Posted on January 31, 2013 by Denise - MDBA

World Wetlands Day 2012

Just in time for World Wetlands Day (on Saturday 2 February), The Living Murray has released Watering the icon sites—a snapshot.

The publication reports on how much environmental water was delivered to the icon sites in the last water year. It also gives an overview of The Living Murray’s environmental watering program through the longest drought in recorded history followed by record rain in the southern Murray-Darling Basin.

On World Wetlands Day, The Living Murray will have a display booth at Goolwa, South Australia – close to the Lower Lakes, Coorong and Murray Mouth icon site. For more information, see the Department of Environment’s World Wetlands Day page.

World Wetlands Day is celebrated internationally each year on 2 February. It marks the anniversary of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Convention) in Ramsar, Iran, on 2 February 1971. All of The Living Murray icon sites include Ramsar listed wetlands.

Interested in more publications from The Living Murray? Have a look at some recent ones, like the online version of The Living Murray Story and The Living Murray Annual Implementation Report.
