Ramsar sites in Switzerland

To protect wetlands, particularly because they are habitats for waterbirds and migratory birds, an international convention was signed in 1971 in Ramsar, Iran. Switzerland ratified the so-called Ramsar Convention in 1976 and agreed to ensure the sustainable use of wetlands and grant them spe-cial protection. To date, 11 sites have been designated sites under the Ramsar Convention in 4 steps. The sixth site was expanded in 2000. These sites include sections of lake shoreline, river deltas, sections of dammed rivers, marshes, glacier forelands in the Alpine region and a bog site.
