Bhutan acceded to the Convention on Wetlands on 7 May 2012, and the Convention therefore came into force for Bhutan on 7 September. The paperwork has recently been completed for Bhutan's first two Wetlands of International Importance.

Bumdeling under Trashiyangtse Dzongkhag and Khotokha under Wangdue Dzongkhag are the first two Ramsar sites of Bhutan.
