A very successful “Ramsar event” took place at Isola della Cona, Italy, within the Isonzo River-mouth Nature Reserve. The reason to celebrate was the recent publication on the national “official gazette” of the approval, by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, of a new “Ramsar site”, to be added to the list of 52 already existing sites, protected under the umbrella of this international convention.

The meeting was held at Isola della Cona wetland centre, and you can find an article here by Fabio Perco, director of the wetland centre.
