THE world celebrated the importance of protecting and maintaining wetlands yesterday as people got together to mark World Wetlands Day.

World Wetlands Day, according to NatureFiji-Mareqeti Viti's Kelera Buadromo, is the one day annually when people are reminded about the importance of creating more sustainable wetlands globally.
