World Wetlands Day at Grand Lieu Lake

World Wetlands Day 2022: a programme of activities around the Grand-Lieu Lake

For World Wetlands Day, more than 20 partners working around the Grand-Lieu Lake have gathered to prepare a lot of activities on the ‘Wetlands Action for People and Nature’ theme. The objective is to raise awareness among as many people as possible about Grand-Lieu Lake and wetlands’ importance. This collaboration offers the general public more than 30 activities throughout February.

Mysterious and often misunderstood places, wetlands are nevertheless extremely rich sources of life that provide many services.

The objectives are raising awareness among all audiences of the importance of wetlands’ conservation and promoting the discovery of Lake Grand-Lieu, an exceptional site recognised as being of international importance. In this regards, 22 communities, associations and organisations have drawn up a common activities’ programme.

This collective project is coordinated by the Grand-Lieu Lake Centre (‘La Maison du Lac de Grand-Lieu’), a wetland centre which is a WLI partner.
