World Wildlife Day: March 3rd Every Year

As mentioned earlier in the week, there are a number of EcoDays here in March.  World Wildlife Day is one of the annual events that The United Nations sponsors.  This year is the 2nd year we've observed World Wildlife Day.  The point is to find ways to make this annual day (and other environmental days) a time and a place to come together as an international community.
"Let us use the 3rd of March as one day we come together to commit to working more actively in the year ahead to combat illegal trade in wildlife and also to create the space and also the understanding for the future of wildlife to thrive."    ~ Quote by Mr. Achim Steiner, United Nations Under-Secretary General, Executive Director in the UN video explaining World Wildlife Day.
For a list of resources to use in your classrooms or with your children at home, check out these wonderful wildlife conservation websites:
