World Wildlife Day 2021 celebrations are on Wednesday, March 3 for the current year 2021.
Wildlife Day is observed every year on the 3rd of March. This year it would be the ninth(9th) time when the International Day of Wildlife would be celebrated and observed universally.
Theme of World Wildlife Day for the current year 2021 has been devised as “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet”
Which illustrates the people, animals and species who are directly or indirectly dependent upon forests for their livelihood.
The theme for the previous year 2020 was, “Sustaining all life on Earth” Which means to include all living beings on earth apart from human beings, to be given a right to live and exist independently. Similarly, in the year 2019, more focus was intended on the life on earth especially below water with the resembling theme “Life below Water: for People and Planet. Hence the theme for the year 2021 is a more improvised form of the UN’s approach towards the prior environment.

What is Wildlife?
When the word “wildlife” itself is examined, it seems to include those animals or living beings that live in forests and in solitude whereas, forests or jungles are their more preferable habitat.
Likewise, the wild expresses the object having insane or over-reactive nature. But it is necessarily not so, commutatively all the living beings that are inanimate or inhuman can be included in the catalogue of wildlife come what may their habitat is i.e, under-water, on earth, etc. United Nations has, therefore, improvised its theme and has encompassed living things on the planet Earth to be called as Wildlife.,
The basic purpose of World Wildlife Day is to let the people acknowledge the benefits that wildlife carries with it for the betterment of the environment and climate. The survival of “Flora and Fauna” (plants and animals) and Marine Species is consequently important for trade and a balanced eco-system.
This Day also signifies the sense of beauty that we can feel and observe in the form of flora and fauna around us. Through International Wildlife Day, awareness can be spread to discourage human activities that harm wildlife and may cause their extinction. Natural resources are the natural benefits which each individual can enjoy without any discrimination or fear of exploitation. This day is thus a gesture to overhaul our natural resources and by careful possession, we can not only entertain ourselves but also secure them for generations ahead. Climate change; a major concern and a burning issue now-a-days, is a result of major harm that human beings have devastated to nature and in turn, are suffering from the loss of climatic equilibrium and failure of organic commodities.
