#World Wildlife Day: The Future Of Wildlife Is In Our Hands

The theme for this year is “The future of wildlife is in our hands”, with African and Asian elephants being the main focus of global campaigns.


Today i.e. 3rd March is proclaimed as World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness about the world’s wild fauna and flora. Due to rampant industrialization and un-sustainable development, many beautiful species of flora and fauna are in danger. Today, many species of plants and animals on earth are either Protected or Endangered !! 

It may not be a good idea to hear from our grandchildren that on a jungle Safari, they were delighted to spot a Dog.... 

On this Wildlife Day, let us re-dedicate ourselves towards sustenance and conservation of wildlife.... 

To celebrate and raise awareness about the world’s wild fauna and flora, on 20th December 2013, the Sixty-eighth session of the United Nations General Assembly decided to proclaim 3rd March as World Wildlife Day. This date also marks the day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973, which plays an important role in ensuring that international trade does not threaten the species’ survival.

World Wildlife Day is an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts. 

The theme for this year is “The future of wildlife is in our hands”, with African and Asian elephants being the main focus of global campaigns. 

On this day, let us re-dedicate ourselves towards conservation of wildlife....
