World Wetlands Day will be celebrated again on Sunday 2nd February 2020.

2nd February each year is World Wetlands Day to raise global awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet.

This day also marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea.

The theme for 2020 is Wetlands and Biodiversity – visit the Ramsar website here.

Boneo Park (near Tootgarook Wetland) will be hosting a number of activities on the day including wetland walks, a workshop and speaker Sean “The Birdman” Dooley.

The Boneo Park property has the largest privately protected habitat on the Mornington Peninsula with over 160 bird species across 300 hectares.

Tickets are only $5.00 and children under 13 are free – see website here.
