World Wildlife Day 2021: Sustaining people and the planet

Mar 03, 2021 11:08 IST | By Editorji News Desk

World Wildlife Day is commemorated every year on the 3rd of March by the United Nations.

It was first celebrated in 2013 when the United Nations General Assembly decided to mark the 3rd of March, which is the day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), as World Wildlife Day.

The day aims to raise awareness about the importance of wildlife in balancing the ecosystem, highlighting the threats they face and finding ways of mitigating these threats.

The theme this year is "Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet.”
