Today is World Wildlife Day! The United Nations has more info on this program on their website if you haven't already heard about it. In short...World Wildlife Day is an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.
On March 3, the government of Nepal, WWF and other partners celebrated 365 days without a single case of rhino, elephant or tiger poaching ending February 2014. This is the second time that the country marked such a milestone after 2011.
Their efforts are focused on Elephants, Tigers, and Rhinos.
I may not always be able to donate with money but the least I can do is educate myself and others, eh!?
