To announce the official start of Mission: Wetlands-Life for Everyone, a collaborative campaign created by multiple civil organizations to generate awareness of the environmental destruction being caused by the Nicaraguan government through its efforts to dredge and reroute the San Juan River by building a canal between it and the adjacent Portillos Island.  Campaign objectives will be explained along with plans to organize a Large-scale National March to support wetland conservation.  Today is a fitting day to invite you to this initiative as it’s International Wetland Day, sponsored by the RAMSAR convention.
