Connecting wetland centres across the world

Russian news from Birds and People

For some more information on what the Russian Birds and People organisation are up to, please see their link.  They are working on the trans-boundary wetland conservation project in Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine, including plans for designation of wetland sites as Ramsar sites or IBAs (important bird areas).  The project also supports the development of ‘wetland keepers’, local groups that can help protect and monitor the wetland sites, and a programme of wetland education and awareness-raising activities that are being run with local schools and teachers.
