Upo Wetland, Rich Habitat for Wild Life

Wetlands used to be considered as ``wastelands,'' and many of them have disappeared under the pretense of ``development.'' However, they are receiving different treatment these days, with their ecological importance emerging.

Upo Wetlands in Changnyeong County, South Gyeongsang Province, is Korea's representative wetland. The nation's largest wetland is especially gaining attention now, as a conference on the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, an international treaty for action and cooperation for the conservation of wetlands and their resources, will be held here late October.
