Happy World Wildlife Day!
Today, March 3rd, has been officially designated by the United Nations as Wildlife Day in celebration of plants and animals across the world and to spread awareness of conservation and protection. Since inception in 2012, the day has in fact become the most important global event dedicated to wildlife!
This year, the theme of the day is ‘Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet’ and highlights the crucial role that forests, forest species and ecosystems serve in sustaining the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people, and particularly of Indigenous and local communities with historic ties to forested and forest-adjacent areas.
Whilst today is an annual celebration, wildlife conservation and community preservation are issues that need attention every day. The UN are therefore asking that you #DoOneThing today to help raise awareness of conservation and to make a difference.
