World Wildlife Day (WWD)

United Nations World Wildlife Day (WWD) is celebrated every year on 3 March to celebrate wild animals and plants.

The WWD2024 Theme is Connecting People and Planet: Exploring Digital Innovation in Wildlife Conservation.

The date is the day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973

CITES plays an important role in ensuring that international trade does not threaten the species’ survival.
