The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, signed in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971, is an intergovernmental treaty which provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.

The US Environmental Protection Agency wetland page provides information on what wetlands are, why they should be protected, how wetlands can be protected, and how you can get involved to protect this vital resource.

The California Coastal Commission website is a comprehensive resource providing information on protection of California's coastal areas.
