Hi all,

I know we have discussed the Cairnes situation enough, except that on the
weekend I was at a beer garden west of Accra in Ghana which was surrounded
by farming and houses. When we were leaving I saw a sign saying that this
was a RAMSAR site.The whole place was screwed up, and I don't even bother
taking my bins because it is pointless.  I might not understand fully, but
why bother having these sites if they do not offer protection? 

If the situation here is anything to go by, we could have a RAMSAR site in
Cairnes, with the RAMSAR Hotel, Phalarope Marina, and the Laughing Gull ice
cream parlor.
