Art and culture

Wetlands are beautiful. They have inspired people for millennia.

Culture is an important aspect of delivering wetland conservation. It helps make local wetlands more relevant to people, and raises awareness of other important reasons to protect and preserve wetlands.

Ramsar Culture Network

The Ramsar Culture Network has done a lot of work on putting together case studies of how cultural activities are relevant and useful in protecting wetlands.  If you have examples of cultural activities at your wetland site, please let us know and we will include them here.


Luli Cicala from Argentina has worked for years in the Tigre River Delta, in Buenos Aires, and she has created beautiful paintings inspired by this wetland environment
