How World Wildlife Day came into Existence

The wildlife of our planet plays a crucial role in maintaining the environment and the Earth’s ecosystems. In December 2003, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in its 68th session, declared 3rd March as World Wildlife Day. For the past 16 years, this day has been celebrated all over the globe to spread awareness about the flora and fauna that constitute wildlife in different parts of the world. This year , the theme for World Wildlife Day is “Forest and livelihoods: sustaining people and planet.” The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) took an important step with the establishment of World Wildlife Day. They aimed to spread knowledge about nature and why wildlife should be conserved at all costs. Many countries consider 3rd March a very significant day, and several efforts to protect wildlife have been taken since the declaration of World Wildlife Day.
