Feb. 2 is World Wetlands Day. Keeping healthy wetlands is important as they reduce the impact of floods, droughts, and cyclones. Moreover, they offer habitats to many living things and reduce environmental pollutants. The Convention on Wetlands is an international treaty adopted on Feb. 2, 1971, in Ramsar, Iran. Since 1997, Feb. 2 has been designated World Wetlands Day and Korea started to celebrate it from 2002.
