February 2 - International Wetlands Day Tuesday, 01 Feb 2011 - Natural-History MuseumEach year on February 2, we celebrate the International Wetlands Day. On this date in 1971 in Ramsar, Iran, the Convention on Wetlands was adopted. Lake Atanasovsko is among the first four wetlands, which Bulgaria added to the Ramsar document. For our country, the Convention is in force since 1976.
Students from two schools in Burgas will participate in the conference „WETLANDS – THE BLUE WEALTH OF BURGAS. The event is organized by the Regional History Museum - Burgas in partnership with the Bulgarian Society for Birds Protection. Three teams from each school, Konstantin Preslavski School and High School of Mathematics Acad N. Obreshkov, will present the richness of Burgas lakes in multimedia presentations. There will be prizes for all participants.
