World Wildlife Day

Wednesday is the UN’s World Wildlife Day. This year, it has the theme of “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet.” According to the official site, this is “to highlight the central role of forests, forest species and ecosystems services in sustaining the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people globally, and particularly of Indigenous and local communities with historic ties to forested and forest-adjacent areas.

World Wildlife Day celebrates forest-based livelihoods and seeks to promote forest and forest wildlife management and practices that accommodate both human well-being and the long-term conservation of forests, forest-dwelling species of wild fauna and the ecosystems they sustain, and promotes the value of traditional practices and knowledge that contribute to establishing a more sustainable relationship with these crucial natural systems.
