Conserving wetlands for people and wildlife

Wetlands International, the world's leading non-profit wetland conservation organisation, was created by the integration of the Asian Wetland Bureau, the International Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Bureau, and Wetlands for the Americas. The achievements of the founding organisations date back 40 years, and include the launch of (and support to) the Ramsar Convention, major regional surveys and conservation programmes for wetlands and wetland species, and the development of international programmes for migratory waterbird conservation.

Sound technical information is the basis for Wetlands International's work, which includes co-ordinating conservation, management and assessment projects at international level, providing technical and fundraising support to national and local projects, and helping to build the capacity of relevant agencies. Wetlands International produces a wide range of publications and awareness materials, and organises numerous workshops, training courses and conferences each year.

Wetlands International's global network provides rapid access to wetland conservation specialists throughout the world. Together with the staff of the organisation's 18 regional and project offices, they provide a unique force to support wetland conservation activities. Partnership is at the heart of Wetlands International, and strong links exist with other international conservation agencies such as IUCN, WWF and BirdLife International, and the secretariats of the Ramsar and Bonn Conventions. Global and regional programmes are supported by over 120 government agencies, NGOs, foundations, development agencies and private sector groups.
