World Wildlife Day

Theme: Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation


March 3 is World Wildlife Day. It is a United Nations International day to celebrate all the world's wild animals and plants and the contribution that they make to our lives and the health of the planet. The theme for World Wildlife Day this year is 'Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation'. Within this theme, the day has a focus on two sub-topics:

  • Marine life & oceans – with around 70% of our planet being covered by water, the impact of marine conservation is incredibly important.
  • Business & finance – globally, conservation efforts need to be funded and this work needs to be done in collaboration with business - an area that, in the past, has been seen as exploitative and unsustainable. Successful partnerships for conservation must find ways of including business if we are to reverse the loss in biodiversity.

In addition to advertising the World Wildlife Day 2023 Global Event which will be broadcasted on YouTube, the World Organization for Animal Health [WOAH] will be hosting a World Wildlife Day 2023 Interactive Webinar “Wildlife health: What is at stake?” on Friday, 3 March, 3:00 p.m.  – 4:00 p.m. (GMT+1:00). Panelists from leading wildlife organisations will help raise awareness on the importance of wildlife conservation and the threats faced by wild animal species. The one-hour panel discussion: “Wildlife health: What is at stake?” will bring together key international partners in wild animal conservation.  Interested persons can click on the link below to participate: World Wildlife Day 2023 - Webinar - World Organisation for Animal Health.
