Abstract

In this short piece, I highlight the alarming extent of the loss of wetland biodiversity globally, and outline some steps for addressing this destruction. Governments have been unable – or unwilling – to halt this loss, even though 170 national governments are Contracting Parties to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, which since 1971 has endeavoured to support efforts to stem the degradation of wetlands.
