Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of World Wildlife Day

Whether your favorite animal is an elephant, tiger or flamingo, World Wildlife Day is your opportunity to support a wide variety of animals. On this national holiday, the United Nations and its partners are planning to raise awareness about critically endangered species such as the Sumatran elephant and the Amur leopard.

Take today to donate to wildlife funds or organizations to help stop more species from reaching the endangered list. If you can’t provide support by making a donation, don’t worry. Even a simple post on social media to spread awareness can make a big impact.

On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 3 March, the day of signature of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), as UN World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants.
