Malaysian Nature Society celebrates World Wetlands Day 2013

The World Wetlands Day (WWD) is celebrated worldwide on the 2nd February each year. The date has been adopted during the Convention on Wetlands in 1971 at Ramsar, Iran. Today, Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP) celebrates WWD at the KSNP Amphitheatre with the collaboration of government agencies, NGOs, University and community groups.

2013’s slogan, “Wetlands Take Care of Water”, was geared to raise the public awareness of the interdependence between water and wetlands as well as to promote the responsible use of water and ways to reduce our water footprint.
