Wetland Education Centres have a parallel role to that of botanic garden education - raising awareness of the functions and values of wetlands within the general public and school groups, as well as emphasising the role of all citizens in conserving wetlands.  This website, in English, French and Spanish contains useful information about the Wetland Link International (WLI) network, set up through the Ramsar convention’s CEPA programme.  It provides an interesting model for the successful workings of a convention CEPA output, links to member organisations and the WLI website.
