RRC-EA and KIA Tigers support World Wetlands Day 2018
As a regular CEPA activity, the Ramsar Regional Center – East Asia (RRC-EA) promotes World Wetlands Day 2018 every year. On 17 July 2018, the RRC-EA returned to the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field to celebrate the event with support from the Kia Tigers professional baseball team. The RRC-EA installed a tent in front of the baseball stadium entrance and offered 1,000 eco-bags, pins, fans and brochures for free to interested people who are watching the game between the Kia Tigers and the Samsung Lions. A ceremonial pitch and hit, broadcasted live on national television, was done by Dr. Gea Jae Joo, Professor of Busan National University, and Mr. Deok Seong Kim, bird conservationist and environmentalist, to mark the start of the game. The video board also showed information about the RRC-EA and World Wetlands Day in between innings.
