What is World Wildlife Day?
On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 3 March – the day that the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was signed in 1973 – as UN World Wildlife Day; to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. World Wildlife Day has now become the most important global annual event dedicated to wildlife.
Wildlife for All: Nature Conservation Charity
In 2019, Wildlife For All got in contact regarding the addition of a wildlife pond to The Oasis and Oasis Woods, a 15-acre nature reserve and education centre set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Mid Sussex
For this, we agreed to donate the lining materials required to create the pond, which can be seen in the photos above, showing the different stages of their team turning this plan into reality!
“The pond provides a home for much wildlife, including Great Crested Newts, and a host of insects. Mallard ducks visit and breed at The Oasis each year. This time of year (winter), the plants have obviously died back, so there’s not much to see until the springtime when it bursts back into life.
Thank you again for helping us with such a high-quality liner that will undoubtedly last many years – probably decades.”
