World Wetlands Day marks the anniversary of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Convention) in Ramsar, Iran on 2 February 1971.  
Friends of Tamar Island Wetlands Reserve are holding a working bee today, as well as guided tours today and Saturday at 10am. 
A scavenger hunt will also run from 2-14 February at the centre which will include a goodie bag for anyone who completes the challenge.  
Limited spaces are available for the guided tour on Saturday 5 February and the scavenger hunt. Please email to book in for the working bee, or or phone 6327 3964 to secure your spot for the tour or scavenger hunt.
