Ramsar’s senior regional representative for the America’s, Maria Rivera, and her colleagues Sophia and Sara visited Slimbridge and the London Wetland Centre, the first time that Maria has been to the UK! She met with the Head of WLI as well as with WWT Consulting, and was very excited to hear about the range of work that we do. She also wants to do more regular exchange visits for conservation staff from the Americas, and updated us on this year’s Wetlands for the Future fund which was recently announced – see the Ramsar website for more details.  The deadline has been extended to the 6th of November.
