Wetlands: Key to a better future

World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on 2 February. The date marks the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea. Sustainable Livelihoods is the theme for this year's World Wetlands Day. This theme is selected to demonstrate the vital role of wetlands for the future of humanity and specifically their relevance towards achieving the new Sustainable Development Goals .

about the annual ET eco camps


Environment TOBAGO believes - if at an early age, people develop a bond with the Nature, then succeeding generations are more likely to attain the attitudinal shift that is so key to achieving sustainable development. Imparting such love and appreciation of the value of Tobago’s natural heritage to the young ones have been a major part of ET’s mission from our NGO's inception.
