World Wildlife Conservation Day

4th December 2018

Event Overview

The world’s best loved species are being slaughtered by widespread and dangerous criminal networks. Driven by a voracious demand for illegal animal parts and products, the black market in wildlife rivals illegal arms and drugs. Increasingly, wildlife traffickers are the same kingpins involved in trafficking people and arms and narcotics.

Although it's not always easy to make a difference to such a distant problem, it is easier to make changes closer to home. Start by learning about what wonderful habitats exist near you then investigate how pesticides can impact them with our wonderful Pesticide Panic!
