im doing a science report, on wetlands and I need to know , I've tried to search something up but im having a hard time finding good info
what laws protect Okefenokee Swamp?
Here's what I've found:
...most of the ecosystem has been officially protected since 1937 when the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge was established by President Roosevelt. The swamp received an additional form of protection in 1974 when a portion was designated as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System... (http://www.sherpaguides.com/georgia/okefenokeeswamp/naturalhistory/)
which has an excellent in-depth description of the swamp and its wildlife.
Additionally - and very importantly - the Okefenokee is inscribed on the Ramsar List (the international Ramsar Wetlands Convention) - see, for example,
www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/nge/Article.jsp?id=h-691 and www.ramsarcommittee.us/links2.asp
It was a pleasure!
I've worked with environmental agencies in Nepal, and Nepal also has Ramsar-listed wetlands.
Best of luck with a fascinating subject!
thank youuu ! susila2
