Animal Awareness Date
Animal Awareness Date is a rubric of the Institute of Animal Law of Asia (IALA) where we celebrate animal holidays throughout the year to highlight the importance of animals in humans' lives and to remind ourselves to appreciate and care for all creatures of the Earth.
It's World Oceans Day!
“Planet Ocean: Tides Are Changing” is the theme for World Oceans Day 2023 - the UN is joining forces with decision-makers, indigenous leaders, scientists, private sector executives, civil society, celebrities, and youth activists to put the ocean first.
Oceans cover over 70% of the planet. It produces at least 50% of the planet’s oxygen and it is home to most of Earth’s biodiversity.
Even though all its benefits, the ocean is now in need of support. With 90% of big fish populations depleted, and 50% of coral reefs destroyed, we are taking more from the ocean than can be replenished. We need to work together to create a new balance with the ocean that no longer depletes its bounty but instead restores its vibrancy and brings it new life.
World Oceans Day reminds everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life. The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans.
It's World Aquatic Animal Day!
World Aquatic Animal Day is an annual day dedicated to aquatic animals, launched for the first time on April 3, 2020. It was the idea of Amy P. Wilson and was co-founded by Amy P. Wilson and Kathy Hessler. Each year, we work to raise global awareness about these often-forgotten and mistreated nonhuman animals.
Aquatic animals play a critical role in our societies and ecosystems. They are important as species, but they also have value and intrinsic worth as individuals. By “aquatic animals” we mean not only fishes or whales, but also the many other animals who inhabit aquatic habitats such as: amphibians, marine mammals, crustaceans, reptiles, mollusks, aquatic birds, aquatic insects, starfish, and corals.
Aquatic animals urgently need to be considered in policy initiatives, education, advocacy, legal decision-making, and stewardship choices. Efforts to raise awareness of the plight of aquatic animals must rise to meet the immense challenges they face. We must consider our interactions with aquatic animals, our treatment of them, and the often-devastating impacts we are having on them and on their habitats.
Cheetahs are wild cats native to Africa and Asia and are threatened by three main factors: human activities, habitat loss, and illegal pet trade.
Today we want to highlight the importance to conserve cheetahs and to remind of how important they are to the environment and ecosystem.
Learn more about this species and how you can help and contribute to the conservation of cheetahs.
