OCTOBER 1st – ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI FEAST DAY (World Wild Life Week)
Wildlife Week is celebrated every year in India between October 1 and 7. The annual theme of the campaign is to promote the preservation of fauna – i.e. animal life.
Wildlife Week was conceptualized in 1952 with the overall goal of raising awareness to serve the long-term goal of safeguarding the lives of wildlife through critical action. In addition, the Indian Government established an Indian Board of Wild Life which works to improve awareness towards the preservation of wildlife. Throughout Wildlife Week, experts conduct hands-on workshops to bring the more complex aspects of wildlife conservation within the reach and understanding of all age groups.
The loss of natural habitat with the intense growth of cities is a serious threat to these beautiful animals who seek to live a peaceful life!
Animal species world-over face growing threats from human activity.
Let’s celebrate all amazing animals – from the wild, to our pets; the urban wild animals to those in the oceans and in the air!
A Shoutout to ALL ANIMALS for World Wildlife Week!
You have it in your hands to change behaviour, lifestyle and habits that can help all animals!!
