The Society for the Philippine Wetlands Storey telling sessions at the Las Piñas Parañaque Wetland Park was featured in the Ramsar Regional Center East Asia Webzine Issue No. 13 last June 2020.
The SCPW with support from the RRC-EA Wetland Fund and the Arts, Literature, Science & Technology Exchange(ALTx), and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Biodiversity Management Bureau, implemented the “World Wetlands Day Climate Storytelling Project” at the Las Piñas Parañaque Wetland Park, NCR, Philippines. The project involves local communities, secondary schools and media practitioners in environmental storytelling by designing a storytelling activity on the importance of wetlands in climate change. The project produced an environmental storybook about Ramsar Sites in the Philippines.
The Ramsar Regional Center East Asia is one of the regional initiatives formally recognized by the Ramsar Convention. As a Ramsar Regional Initiative (RRI), the RRC-EA was established through the initiative of the Ministry of Environment (MOE) of the Republic of Korea to serve as a regional platform for capacity building, information exchange, and cooperation among governments, Ramsar Site and wetland managers and stakeholders, international and national non-government organizations, technical experts and business organizations.
