In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed March 3rd as the signature day for World Wild Life Day. This date is now the most important global annual event dedicated to wildlife. Aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the aim was to ensure sustainable use of resources and conserving life; both on land and below water to halt biodiversity loss. This years theme is ‘Sustaining all life on Earth’ and as we move through a new decade, we move towards a more responsible and concious way of living.
Home to countless species, unsustainable human activities and overexploitation of the species and natural resources that make up the habitats and ecosystems of all wildlife are imperiling the world’s biodiversity, with nearly a quarter of all species are presently at risk of going extinct in the coming decades.
On World Wildlife Day 2020, we’ve teamed up with clothing and conservation brand Big Wild Thought, to celebrate the wild animals in their many varied and beautiful forms as a component of the world’s biological diversity.
