Towards a Universal Declaration of the Rights of Wetlands

New article by James Whitacre, Research Associate, with G. T. Davies, C. M. Finlayson, D. E. Pritchard, N. C. Davidson, R. C. Gardner, W. R. Moomaw , and E. Okuno

"In this article we propose a Universal Declaration of the Rights of Wetlands, consistent with the 1982 World Charter for Nature. Recognition of these rights supports the provision of ecosystem services essential to human well-being and to other life on Earth."
