Americas members

Home to some of the most biodiverse areas in the world, from the Arctic to the sub-Antarctic.

Many networks and local community groups exist, often working closely with their wetlands as much for social benefits as for ecological benefits.

Please contact Felipe Velasco who is the representative for the Neotropics or Laura Chamberlain who is representative for North America.

The habitat moves from vast tracts of wilderness in the north, including huge wetlands such as the Great Lakes, down through highly agricultural regions and to more tropical conditions in southern Mexico. See right for a picture of the 2010 blue globe-winning site.
