Apply for a Star Wetland Centre Award!

Published: February 2nd, 2022

Starting this World Wetlands Day, members of WLI are invited to apply for our new accreditation scheme.
We have convened an international panel of wetland centre experts, to help award 12 Wetland Centre Stars in 2022. We hope the award will help WLI members promote their good work and reputation, as an international recognised wetland visitor centre.

To apply, WLI members have to fill in a detailed questionnaire, which looks at what they do. They also have to upload some supporting images and certificates to illustrate and validate their answers to the questionnaire.
In this first year we will limit the number of awardees to 12. We hope to announce the winners in a side-event at the Ramsar COP in November (still to be confirmed).
No matter the size of your wetland centre, we hope you will feel able to enter. The questionnaire may help you see areas for improvement. And if you are awarded, for example, a Bronze star, you can try for a Gold next time!
The closing date for this round is 30 April 2022.
