Happy #WorldWildlifeDay

“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.” - Charles Darwin 

Today, March 3rd, is known as #WorldWildlifeDay. A day in which we celebrate, and raise awareness of the vigorous efforts still needed to be made to protect endangered wildlife + address the ongoing major threats to our planet’s creatures, like climate change, over-exploitation + illicit trafficking. This year's theme is “Listen to the Young Voices.”

In November, after adopting a Sea Lion through the World Wild Life Fund, we had the most magical experience of encountering California Sea Lions in their natural habitat over at King Harbour Marina in Redondo Beach. These fetid, yet fascinating creatures are extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change. 

So what can we do to make a difference? 

Post on social media. Share what Wildlife means to you, and remember to use the hashtags #DoOneThingToday, #youth4wildlife, #YoungVoices,  #WorldWildlifeDay, #EndWildlifeTrafficking.

Enter the World Wildlife Day 2017 Photo Competition. The winner gets a free flight and 2 night accommodation to New York for World Wildlife day 2017!

Engage with others and spread the world on why fighting climate change + animal trafficking is so vital for our planet.

Adopt an animal through the World Wildlife Fund, and truly experience the joy of giving back to our planet.

Check out our California Sea Lion adventure below + always remember that fighting for wildlife rights does not have to end once the day is through.
