Publications - Important bird sites

 
Pienkowski, Dr. M.W.,
In 2003, the Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) commissioned a review of existing and potential Ramsar sites in the UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies from the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum (UKOTCF). The final report was completed in April 2005
 
This report highlights the range of activities being undertaken which will result in benefits for wetlands and demonstrates the UK's continuing commitment to implementing the Resolutions agreed by the Conference of the Parties to the Ramsar Convention.
