Gyeongnam Ramsar Environmental Foundation
Gyeongnam Ramsar Environmental Foundation was established in 2008 under an Ordinance of Gyeongnam Provincial
Government in order to protect the wetlands and to increase public awareness on the importance of environment.
the “Ramsar” in the name of the Foundation came from the Ramsar Convention on wetlands. the Convention was
adopted in the Iranian city of Ramsar in 1971 to protect waterfowls that migrate beyond the borders and wetlands all around the world.
Since the Ramsar COP10 held in Changwon, Gyeongnam, Republic of Korea in 2008, the Foundation has been leading wetland conservation in Gyeongnam Province under the spirit of the Ramsar Convention.
the Foundation is being funded by the Gyeongnam Provincial Government and three private companies, which are Gyeongnam Bank, Gyeongnam Nonghyup (National Agricultural Cooperative Federation), and STX Shipbuilding Group.
the Foundation is a legally registered organization to the Korean Tax Authority for donations. Your donation will make a difference in our precious environment.
