World Wetlands Day

The United Nations marked February 2 as World Wetlands Day to celebrate the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on the same day in 1971.

The event seeks to mobilize governments, organizations and individuals all around the world in efforts to save and restore wetlands that have been faced with degradation and deterioration in the past decades.

De La Salle University-Dasmarinas recognizes the important role that wetlands play in protecting shores from wave action and reducing the impacts of flooding in coastal areas. Through various partnerships with government and non government organizations, mangrove planting is among the major thrusts of the University’s community and social service component to save communities from the impacts of flooding and provide a rich ecosystem for marine wildlife.
