World Wetlands Day 2016
Tamar Island Workshops with WTAG


WTAG members helped promote and support International Wetlands Day, by participating in some interesting workshops and an interactive installation. Besides the activities on the deck, you could take a lovely stroll out to the island where some of the fun was.
