World Wetlands Day, which is observed on 2 February in memory of the conclusion of the Ramsar Convention on 2 February 1971, is being marked by various activities by nature parks and bird reserves throughout Croatia on Wednesday.

Croatia is a signatory to the convention concluded in the Iranian city 51 years ago, and Croatia’s entries into the list of Wetlands of International Importance are the Kopački Rit, Lonjsko Polje, Vransko Jezero (Jezero Vrana), the Crna Mlaka bird reserve outside Zagreb and the delta of the River Neretva.

They are organizing presentations and birdwatching on the occasion of today’s World Wetlands Day.

In 2021, the trans-border biosphere reserve which stretches along the Drava, Mura and Danube Rivers, was designated by UNESCO as the first biosphere reserve extending through five countries: Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, and Serbia. This also is seen as a contribution to efforts to preserve wetlands.
