World Nature Day

He World Nature Day (also known as World Wildlife Day) is celebrated every year on March 3 since the UN General Assembly declared it so in 2013. The main objective of having a date marked on the calendar for nature is , raise awareness about the value of wild fauna and flora. The date chosen marks the anniversary of the approval in 1973 of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) which plays an important role in the protection of species against international trade.

Every year World Nature Day has a different theme, this year it is Sustaining all life on Earth.

Each species is important within the natural environment where it lives, either as food for other animals or as pest control, that is, avoiding the massive proliferation of any organism, whether animal or plant, that can cause havoc in the environment.

That we are at the limit is clear. In fact, on September 25, 2015, 193 countries agreed to commit to complying with the 17 sustainable development goals imposed by the United Nations and with a deadline: the year 2030. Some of the objectives of this agenda are closely related to the sustainability of the planet:

  • Clean water and sanitation
  • Achieve universal and equitable access to drinking water at an affordable price for all people and access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene services for all people.
  • Improve water quality reducing pollution.
  • Significantly increase the efficient use of water resources in all sectors.
  • Implement integrated management of water resources at all levels, including through cross-border cooperation, as appropriate.
  • Protect and restore ecosystems related to water, including forests, mountains, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes.
  • Affordable and clean energy

There are many actions you can take in your day to day to reduce the overexploitation of natural resources. lead a more lifestyle ecological in which you separate the garbage, consume less plastic and replace it with reusable products, turn off the lights when you are not using them, consume ecological products, try not to leave electronic devices plugged in, use the car less, take your bags to the supermarket and turn off the tap as long as you're not using it.

From Defeder we encourage the circular economy, and we encourage society to interact with the environment in a respectful way and encourage in others the interest and respect for each form of life that inhabits this planet. To the extent that we care about each plant and animal, to the same extent we will be able to guarantee our own conservation.
