Sunday 4th October 2020 is World Animal Day. The mission of World Animal Day is to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. Building the celebration of World Animal Day unites the animal welfare movement, mobilizing it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals. It’s celebrated in different ways in every country, irrespective of nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.
Through increased awareness and education we can create a world where animals are always recognized as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.
One health is a multidisciplinary approach to maintenance of the environment, human health and animal health. This must be respected to maintain safety and avoid spillovers of diseases from animals to humans and vice versa. We should learn to let the wild stay in the wild, it is for the best.
Additionally, the many laws that are present banning illegal trade in animals and their products should be enforced and reviewed. Alternative medication can be used in place of those based off of animal products and surely there are other sources of ornate value than the tusks and horns of our precious wildlife. Protecting our animals, is protecting ourselves, our future and our future generations.
Join us to celebrate World Animal Day!
