World Wildlife Day

During its 68th session on December 20, 2013, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) declared March 3 as World Wildlife Day through resolution UN 68/205. This date coincides with the international day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973. The purpose of World Wildlife Day is to heighten global awareness and promote the well-being of fauna and flora on the planet. This commemoration, suggested by Thailand, serves to celebrate and raise awareness about the world's diverse and endangered wildlife.
