Today is the UN World Wildlife Day. World Wildlife Day will be celebrated in 2021 under the theme “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet”, as a way to highlight the central role of forests, forest species and ecosystems services in sustaining the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people globally, and particularly of Indigenous and local communities with historic ties to forested and forest-adjacent areas. This aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goals 1, 12, 13 and 15, and their wide-ranging commitments to alleviating poverty, ensuring sustainable use of resources, and on conserving life land.
Wildlife is entering the locality in search of food as the forest is cut down for human needs. And this is why they are losing their lives.
To prevent this situation, like other countries of the world, Bangladesh will also observe the day through various programs on this day. This year’s theme is ‘Forest and Livelihood: Sustainable People and Planet’, which has been done in the context of Bangladesh, ‘To save people and the world: forests and livelihoods.’
On December 20, 2013, the 7th General Assembly of the United Nations declared March 3 as World Wildlife Day. A discussion meeting will be held at Bon Bhaban on the occasion of the day.
