World Wildlife Day is celebrated each year on March 3 to raise awareness of issues that impact wildlife. Earth is home to countless species, and wildlife plays an important role in balancing the environment. It can be found in all ecosystems, deserts, rainforests, plains, and other areas.

World Wildlife Day is observed to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants and discussing the threats they are facing and the urgent need for governments, civil society, private sector actors, and individuals to add their voices and take actions to help conserve wildlife and ensure its continued use is sustainable.
