Wetland Link International (WLI) is a global network of wetland education centers, founded in 1991 by Wildfowl and Wetland Trust (WWT) and supporters. It is endorsed by the Ramsar Convention as a key mechanism that supports wetland education centers in implementing CEPA (communication, capacity building, education, participation and awareness) activities at wetland sites.
