Wetlands International Charity Profile

Wetlands International is a global organisation that works to sustain and restore wetlands and their resources for people and biodiversity.

We are an independent, not-for-profit, global organization, supported by government and NGO membership from around the world.

Based mostly in the developing world, we have 20 regional, national or project offices in all continents and a head office in Wageningen, the Netherlands
Mission
Wetlands International’s mission is “to sustain and restore wetlands, their resources and biodiversity for future generations”.

What this mission means in our daily work.
This mission is the 'umbrella' for our activities. To give a brief example what this mission means for us:

We explore all kind activities to conserve wetland species with a focus on waterbirds and fish. Thousands of volunteers monitor millions of waterbirds annually. We collate and analyse this information to provide overviews of population trends and guidance for site designation to governments and wetland managers.

We work on the conservation of networks of sites that support migratory waterbirds (flyways), by checking their condition through regular moitoring programmes, raising awareness among the people living around these wetlands about their values and by enabling stakeholders and governments to conserve and manage them.
We also help people to conserve and restore wetlands for the services they provide - such as drinking water, fish, reeds for building material etc. We advise local organisations how to use their wetlands in a sustainable way and enable them to take action themselves. We inform their governments about the importance of wetlands for biodiversity and people and about ways to ensure their wise use.
We carry out research to elucidate and quantify the role of wetlands in water management. For example wetlands can play a role in water purification and in mitigating floods and droughts. We advise governments on how to integrate wetland management into water resource management programmes at the catchment or basin scale
