World Wildlife Day is March 3

Ask our Experts
Posted on February 28, 2019

This Sunday is the United Nation’s World Wildlife Day. The theme for 2019 is “Life below water: for people and planet”, which aims to raise awareness about “the breathtaking diversity of marine life, the crucial importance of marine species to human development, and how we can make sure it will continue to provide these services for future generations.”
