On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 3 March, the day of signature of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), as UN World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. The UNGA resolution also designated the CITES Secretariat as the facilitator for the global observance of this special day for wildlife on the UN calendar. World Wildlife Day has now become the most important global annual event dedicated to wildlife.
It would be a good day to join (or donate to) the Sierra Club or any similar animal/plant loving, environmental organization; additionally, it would be a great time to think about doing more environmentally-friendly action.
Hoorah for wildlife!
Yes indeed! 🙂 We need to do much more for wildlife!
Love that spider. Ever since I’ve gotten a good look at their eyes, jumping spiders of every sort have delighted me.
They are one of my favorites! 🙂

Thanks for the reminder, Tom.
Very appreciative of that, Ken! 🙂 Keep caring and clicking that camera! 🙂
It’s always good to be environmental friendly every day. Hope you find some followers for this idea, Thomas. Have a nice weekend, kind regards Mitza
Yes, Mitza; each of us needs to do more environmentally! 🙂
Every day is World Wildlife Day
Yes, Sara! 🙂 I wish everyone cared as much as you do!
Me too Tom! You do a beautiful job inviting people into Nature through your exquisite photography…to save Nature we have to love her and you help people move through that door.
Your photos are amazing. I could spend all day looking at them! Thank you!
Thank you, Susan! 🙂 However, the photos are just digital images. The real treasures are the animals and plants themselves… and the depth that is in the writings/postings.
An event that should be celebrated all year long.
Great spider photo!
Yes, Belinda, all year long! 🙂
Jumping spiders are definitely one of my favorites! They are so comical and that “stereoscopic vision that they have”!
Hey there — couldn’t help but think that you will enjoy following this wonderful Hawaiian blog . . . lots of wildlife pics from Paradise :)) Dawn
There is no paradise anywhere on earth until mankind gets things sane and orderly.
Now that’s the beauty of nature!
God’s creatures are absolutely amazing! Although I have arachnophobia, I still enjoy watching these creepy crawlers! 😀
