IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, is hosting a 2019 global art contest in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in celebration of World Wildlife Day (WWD) 2019. The UN World Wildlife Day is recognized annually on March 3rd to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. Focusing on marine species for the first time with the theme of Life below water: for people and planet, the 2019 contest is in close alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 (Life below water), and presents an opportunity to encourage youth engagement while highlighting marine species that will be discussed at the upcoming global CITES meeting in May 2019.
You can help all animals and our planet by choosing compassion on your plate and in your glass. #GoVeg
