They also supported a parliamentary event encouraging the UK government to create a national wetland strategy, and showcasing the work of WWT and the importance of the Convention on Wetlands.

Dr Mumba praised WWT’s work both in promoting the importance of wetlands and the Convention on Wetlands at national and international level, but also the international CEPA work that WWT does through WLI, and the Wetland Learning Hub.
