World Wetlands Day
February 2 is World Wetlands Day, the date on which the Convention on Wetlands was signed in 1971, on the banks of the Caspian Sea, in the Iranian city of Ramsar.
One of the main achievements of this Agreement, also called Ramsar, has been the creation of the list of wetlands of international importance. This list is made up of 2,293 wetlands in 169 countries with an area of ??225,418,823 hectares.
From femturisme.cat we make some interesting proposals for wetlands that we have in Catalonia:
Wetlands of the Empordà
The Natural Park of the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà is one of the most recognized Catalan wetlands, together with the Delta del Ebro and the Delta del Llobregat. Its size and its natural spaces present the possibility of carrying out multiple activities.
National Park of Aigüestortes and Pond of Sant Maurici
The National Park of Aigüestortes is one of the doors to paradise that the Catalan Pyrenees offers us. The walk through this place brings us closer to the mythical postcard landscapes such as Lake Sant Maurici at the foot of the Encantats, but also allows us to appreciate nature in its purest state.
Delta of the Ebro
The Delta del Ebro, with 320 square kilometers, is the most important wetland in Catalonia and the first aquatic habitat in the western Mediterranean.
