Celebrating World Wildlife Day

Taking place on March 3rd every year, World Wildlife Day is a United Nations International day to celebrate wild animals and the contribution that they make to both our lives and our planet. Let’s explore more about this international awareness day.


World Wildlife Day

Why March 3rd?

March 3rd was chosen by the United Nationals General Assembly (UNGA) as the designated date because it’s the birthday of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), signed on March 3rd, 1973.

World Wildlife Day 2024: This Year’s Theme

The theme for World Wildlife Day 2024 is “Connecting People and Planet: Exploring Digital Innovation in Wildlife Conservation”. This theme focuses on how digital innovation and digital conservation technologies can help with wildlife conservation, sustainable wildlife trade, and human-wildlife coexistance for future generations.

Why is World Wildlife Day Important?

World Wildlife Day is important for many reasons. It serves various purposes, including:

1. Raising Awareness

World Wildlife Day raises awareness about the wide array of wildlife on our planet, the threats they face, including habitat loss, climate change, and poaching, and the urgent need for conservation efforts to protect them. It highlights the critical role that wildlife plays in maintaining the balance of ecosystems and the health of the planet.

2. Promoting Conservation

It promotes the importance of conservation efforts and the sustainable use of natural resources. By focusing on different themes each year, it brings attention to specific issues or species in need of conservation efforts.

3. Encouraging Global Action

It fosters global cooperation and solidarity in the fight against illegal wildlife trade and other threats to wildlife. The day is a call to action for governments, organizations, and individuals to work together to protect natural habitats and ensure the survival of wildlife for future generations.

4. Representing Cultural and Economic Importance

Wildlife has significant cultural and economic importance for many communities around the world. World Wildlife Day recognizes the value of wildlife in tourism, livelihoods, and as part of cultural heritage, emphasizing the need to preserve these resources.

Overall, World Wildlife Day plays a crucial role in reminding us of our shared responsibility to protect wildlife and ensure a sustainable future for all living beings on our planet.

How to Celebrate World Wildlife Day 

Celebrating World Wildlife Day offers a great opportunity to engage in activities that support wildlife conservation and increase awareness about the importance of biodiversity. Here are some meaningful ways to celebrate:

1. Develop Your Knowledge

Take the time to learn about wildlife conservation issues, particularly those that are most pressing in your region or globally. Share this knowledge with friends, family, and through social media to spread awareness. 

2. Support Wildlife Conservation Organizations

Donate to or volunteer with organizations that are actively working on wildlife conservation. Your support can help fund crucial projects aimed at protecting species and their habitats. 

BeCause Tees are proud to support various ecological nonprofits as part of our mission - we make a donation and fund the planting of trees for every order placed!

3. Visit a National Park or Wildlife Refuge

Experience wildlife firsthand by visiting a national park, wildlife refuge, or sanctuary. These visits not only offer a direct connection to nature but also support conservation efforts through entrance fees. 

4. Create a Wildlife-Friendly Garden

If you have a garden or any kind of outdoor space, consider making it more wildlife-friendly. Planting native plants, setting up bird feeders, or creating a small pond can attract and support local wildlife. Find more tips for creating wildlife-friendly gardens with our posts about gardening for bees, hummingbirds, and bats.

5. Get the Kids Involved

Engage kids in activities that teach them about wildlife and conservation. This could include crafts, educational games, or reading books about animals and nature. Our Kids Nature Crafts Pinterest board has fun crafting ideas.
