The Ramsar Convention, one of the oldest environmental treaties!

The goal of the Convention is to draw international attention to wetland habitats, their loss and the critical role they play in our ecosystems and our economy. The Convention sets up a framework for action and cooperation to conserve and wisely use wetlands and their resources. Governments that join the Convention commit to reversing wetland loss and degradation.

Today, 163 countries, including the United States, are Parties to the Convention. Over 2,000 wetlands covering nearly 200 million hectares around the world are officially designated as Wetlands of International Importance, indicating that a country has committed to promote the conservation of that wetland. The United States currently has 34 Ramsar sites covering 1,668,485 hectares. The U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service partner to support the Convention.
