The  Convention on Wetlands, also  called Ramsar  Convention,   an international  governmental  treaty  that provides  the framework   for national  and international cooperation for the  conservation and  wise use of wetlands and their  resources, has  named   six  locations  in the Philippines as   wetlands of international importance. 
These are Olango Island in  Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu; Naujan Lake  National Park in Oriental Mindoro; the Agusan Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary in CARAGA Region; Tubbataha Reefs  National Marine  Park  located in the middle of the Central Sulu Sea, about  150 kilometer southeast of  Puerto  Princesa; the Puerto  Princesa Subterranean River National Park in Palawan; and the Las Pinas-Paranaque Critical Habitat and  Ecotourism Area.
