2024 was another strong year for World Wetlands Day activities, as you can see on the official World Wetlands Day website. Here's a summary from the WLI network.

Our friends at MedWet ran a social media campaign on the year's theme, which they called #WetlandsForHumans. One of their spotlights was this post about the Head of WLI, Chris Rostron.

Liceo Tallar San Miguel held multiple activities in their on-campus wetland, Danapure. Older children engaged in small-scale habitat management, to facilitate diverse pollinators. They even made a video about how much it means to them. Younger children and their families enjoyed an expedition through the wetland forest, observing insets and plants with eyes and hands, and howler monkeys with their ears!

Sharing materials and information is a core WLI function, so we were delighted to see WWT's wetlands and wellbeing work being referenced by WLI members Visitor Centre Wetland Ilene, Nordre Øyeren, and Orland nasjonale vatmarksenter.
