World Wildlife Day

This upcoming year, World Wildlife Day (WWD) falls on CITES’ 50th Anniversary. Throughout the past 50 years, partnerships have been at the heart of CITES, with Parties to the Convention working with the shared goal of ensuring the sustainability of endangered species. UN agencies, private sector organizations, philanthropies, and non-governmental organizations have been mobilized, working for conservation, the sustainable use of wildlife, and in the fight against illegal trade and the depletion of wildlife. At national and local levels, partnerships are essential in every country across the globe to focus on the conservation of species and ecosystems. WWD will celebrate the bridge that CITES has been for these partnerships to form, making a significant contribution to sustainability, wildlife, and biodiversity conservation.
