World Wetlands Day in Bolivia

World Wetlands Day was celebrated in Bolivia on February 2nd, an event that was marked by the designation of three separate wetlands within Mojos on the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands list. The Ramsar Convention is an international agreement to designate and promote the "conservation and wise use" of wetlands around the world. It is good to see the government of Bolivia showing interest in the environment of the Beni as a positive good; I think that it's fair to say that this was not always the case, but this is a hopeful development.
