What we do

Wetlands International works globally to sustain wetlands, their resources and their biodiversity. We work at all levels, from on-the-ground projects to global conventions, and from community activities to scientific research. Our work produces tangible results, from myth-breaking beliefs on avian influenza to the planting of millions of mangrove seedlings.

Five categories

In the menu, you will find the topics within which we are active. We can divide our activities, related to wetlands, in five categories:

  1. Protecting wetland biodiversity
  2. Improving peoples livelihoods
  3. Making vulnerable coasts more resilient
  4. Mitigation of, and adaptation to climate change
  5. Improving water management

The map shows our field projects. This is just a small summary of our projects as much of our activities are not confined to one location.
