It’s World Environment Day this Sunday!
World Environment Day was established by the United Nations in 1972 and is celebrated on the 5 June each year. The theme for this year’s World Environment Day is “Go Wild for Life” which encourages you to celebrate all those species under threat and take action of your own to help safeguard them for future generations.
The illegal trade of our wildlife is having a devastating impact on the future of so many of our planet’s precious animals and plants. There is a desperate need to change our habits and behaviours so that the demand for wildlife products falls. You can help by actively demonstrating zero-tolerance for the illegal trade in wildlife. Collectively we can push governments and internationals bodies to introduce tougher laws and penalise those willing to break them.
