The term 'wetland center' encompasses a range of facilities, ranging from small centers to larger centers with a range of facilities, possibly including a dedicated visitor center, classroom facilities, and curriculum-based education services for young children to postgraduate students. They may be owned or operated by a variety of public or private organizations, including charitable trusts, governments, and environmental groups. In many cases they support formal curricula but not do necessarily make use of the wise use material provided by the Ramsar Convention. The following practical topics may serve as a basis for educational or training courses and could guide the development of suitable teaching materials for specific courses and practical demonstrations: wetland conservation; wetland restoration and creation; understanding the value of wetlands; stakeholder engagement; and integrated planning.
