Today is World Wildlife Day!
Proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly on 20 December 2013 and held on 3 March each year, World Wildlife Day is a global celebration of the beautiful and richly diverse forms of wild animals and plants on our planet. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits they provide to people and to drive discussions and work towards transformative change on the urgent threats facing them.
This year, World Wildlife Day is celebrated under the theme of “Sustaining all life on Earth“, encompassing all wild animal and plant species as key components of the world’s biodiversity.
World Wildlife Day 2020 not only seeks to celebrate the vibrant diversity of the biosphere but also highlight the stakes humankind has in conserving this diversity of life and ensuring its long-term survival through a move towards a more sustainable relationship with it.
