World Wetlands Day is celebrated in the Nordic countries always on September 2nd. The event, organized by the international RAMSAR Convention on Wetlands, aims to awaken people’s interest in wetlands and remind them of their importance.
Waterfowl have once again migrated from their overwintering areas to the Finnish wetlands for their nesting season. May 9–10 marks the celebration of the World Migratory Bird Day. Because of this, The Finnish Wildlife Agency wishes to remind people of the importance of internationally coordinated hunting and up-to-date catch statistics. The theme of the World Migratory Bird Day is: taking waterfowl into consideration in the development of energy technology.
