  World Wetlands Day - 2 February: http://www.worldwetlandsday.org/

February each year is World Wetlands Day.  This day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea.

Each year since 1977, the Ramsar Secretariat has provided materials to help raise public awareness about the importance and value of wetlands.
