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.

"World Wetlands Day is an annual event used by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands as a campaign day to promote wetland ecosystems around the world," Mrs Buadromo said.

"For the year 2014 the World Wetlands Day theme is 'Wetlands and Agriculture: Partners for Growth', this is in recognition of the UN declared year for 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming."
