Go ‘Wild for Life’ on June 5th. It’s the United Nations World Environment Day (WED) of awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Each WED is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. This year the theme is the illegal trade in wildlife.
Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries. Above all, WED serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something to take care of the Earth or become an agent of change.
