March 03, 2017 is World Wildlife Day. This day had been introduced in 1973 during the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. It aims to save plants and animals in danger of extinctions due to commercial interests. The convention prohibits the trade of such threatened species.
World Wildlife Day stresses the valuable heritage of biodiversity humans are responsible for. Every individual is called to become active and try his best to help saving threatened species. At least people should be aware of how many plants and animals are in danger of extinction and check the species listed. World Wildlife Day is a perfect opportunity to get in touch with this severe problem.
