The United Nations World Wildlife Day is a global celebration. World Wildlife Day takes place annually on 3 March. This year, World Wildlife Day will be celebrated under the theme of “Sustaining all life on Earth”.
Forests are home to nearly half of all land-based species. They provide the air we breathe and much of the resources to sustain the livelihoods of close to 1.6 billion people.
Developing a more sustainable relationship with nature is key to protecting the rich diversity of wildlife and its ecosystems.
Threats and challenges facing wildlife and their ecosystems
Global efforts underway to ensure sustainable use of wildlife
World Heritage unites nations behind a shared commitment to preserve the world’s most outstanding heritage, including biological diversity for the benefit of present & future generations.
Whether on land, in the oceans, in forests, wetlands or closer to population centers: wildlife and their ecosystems are declining. We must halt biodiversity loss and boost conservation efforts before it is too late.
