World Wildlife Day
World Wildlife Day is celebrated on 3 March.
It's a global celebration of wildlife and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
It provides an opportunity to:
- celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora
- consider and reflect on the benefits that wildlife provides to people, and
- highlight the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.
