The United Nations’ World Wildlife Day, held annually on March 3, is a global celebration of the beautiful and diverse forms of wild animals and plants on our planet.
It’s also an opportunity for raising awareness of the many benefits they provide to people and to drive discussions and work towards transformative change on the urgent threats facing them.
