World Wildlife Day takes place annually on March 3rd and sparks global celebrations and UN events stressing the 2022 theme “Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration”.
The celebrations will seek to draw attention to the conservation status of some of the most critically endangered species of wild fauna and flora, and to drive discussions towards imagining and implementing solutions to conserve them. All conversations will be inspired by and seek to inform efforts towards the achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goals 1 (No Poverty), 2 (Zero hunger) 12 (Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns), 13 (Climate Action) 14 (Life Below Water) and 15 (Life on Land).
THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Countries around the world are celebrating World Wildlife Day in various ways. March 3rd Events will take place at the UN Headquarters in New York City and at the European headquarters of the UN in Geneva. Activities and celebrations range from youth art contests, to virtual events to the WWD Film Festival 2020. For more information on events in your country visit the website: click here
Our lives continue to be Socially Sparked by Wildlife and plant life today. Personally, the thought that these precious elements of our life are in danger of being destroyed and in some instances, extinguished is very disturbing. Everyone can help raise awareness by adding theirr voices and taking actions to help conserve wildlife and ensure its continued use is sustainable. — Abbe is #SociallySparked.
