Wetlands International manages and develops the Ramsar Sites Database under contract to the Ramsar Convention Secretariat. We are very pleased to announce that the Ramsar Sites Database is now fully accessible through the internet! Via this new information tool, we hope to reach as many interested people as possible and to provide useful data to the public for designated wetlands around the globe in order to promote their conservation. A search facility now makes it possible to find one or more Ramsar sites by selecting on nearly any combination of criteria. Not only is it possible to do a "quick search" on site name or country, an "advanced" query even allows the user to select on criteria such as coordinates, designation date, wetland type or land use, to name a few. There are several ways to view the information on each Ramsar site that result from your query. Reporting includes a Site Overview, the original Ramsar Information Sheet and the Ramsar Site Directory Report. In addition, there is a possibility to export the data for further analysis and/or mapping purposes.
