A Ramsar site is a wetland site designated to be of international importance under the Ramsar Convention. The Sasmuan Coastal Wetlands is a newly designated Ramsar site last 2021. It is located off the coast of the town of Sasmuan, Pampanga in the northern part of Manila Bay. These sheltered wetlands include mudflats, mangroves, and riverine habitats that serve as important stopover points for migratory birds. Aquaculture ponds also cover large parts of the site, helping to support the local livelihood.
