A Day to Celebrate!

World Wildlife Day is the most crucial international annual occasion committed to wildlife. On the 3rd of March in 1973, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was born.

For the World Wildlife Day we chose the King of the Jungle; the Lion as a subject. 2021 World Wildlife Day will be celebrated under the theme "Forests and Livelihoods: sustaining people and planet" as a way to highlight the central role of forests, forest types, and ecosystems services in sustaining the incomes of hundreds of countless individuals worldwide, and especially of Local and native communities with historical ties to forested and forest-adjacent locations.


World Wildlife Day Top Events and Things to Do:

1. Delight in the planet's biodiversity by going to the zoo or by going on a safari. You might also check out a nature museum, an arboretum, or a national park to see the wide range of flora and fauna.

2. Volunteer to help clean up trash and other debris along a beach, park, or stretch of road. Trash and particles contaminate the water and land environments of our world's animals and plants. In addition to contaminating, garbage and particles can be ingested by animals or can serve as a net and trap them.

3. See documentaries about conservation efforts and global loss of biodiversity. A few of our favorites are Call of Life (2010 ), End of the Line (2009 ), Home (2009), and Garbage Island (2008 ).

4. Contribute to one of the many companies that secure the planet and conserve biodiversity. Organizations consist of the World Wildlife Fund, Wildlife Conservation Society, Wildlife Alliance, and Animal Well-being Institute.

5. Host a wildlife celebration. Prepare various trivia concerns and realities about animals and plants, and divide your buddies into groups to see who is the most educated about the world's biodiversity.
