The world is full of amazing creatures in every possible way. From birds that fill the sky with thousands of species, colors and shapes, reptiles that live on earth, animals that are on land, whether it is in forests, fields and human settlements to fish that fill the sea in a variety of wonderful shapes and colors. Wild animals are animals that grow freely in the wild, in their natural places, without being cared for and exploited by humans for arduous work, entertainment and eating.
World Wildlife Day is a day designed to remind us of our responsibility for the world in which we live and the other life forms that share the world with us.
The history of World Wildlife Day
On March 3, 1973, the Washington Convention, or Protected Animals, was signed at the United Nations, or in its full name: Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). This treaty was signed by governments committing to nature conservation And its resources and protect endangered species.
This agreement was an agreement under which international trade in wildlife and wild plants does not threaten their very survival and it provides protection to varying degrees to more than 33,000 species of animals and plants.
On December 20, 2013, another step was taken to help spread awareness of the endangered species of animals in the world. The UN has declared that every year World Wildlife Day will be held, each time focusing on a different theme and idea that will help us keep in touch with the changing nature of our world, and the treasures we are about to lose in the animal and plant kingdom if we do not preserve them.
The theme of this year's World Wildlife Day is "Sustaining all life on Earth", encompassing all wild animal and plant species as key components of the world's biodiversity.
How to Celebrate World Wildlife Day
The best way to celebrate Wildlife Day is to learn about them and spread the message of this important day. The Nature and Parks Authority holds activities on World Wildlife Day such as tours and tutorials, and activities that are suitable for children such as costumes and art workshops. You can go on a safari or a zoo, but there you will probably meet big, sad cats that are caged. No matter how you choose to celebrate Wildlife Day, what is important is that you spread the message that animals are important to our world for many reasons and should be maintained and treated with respect.
August 10th is International Lion Day, a holiday in honor of the King of Beasts, the Royal Hunter, the King of Jungle that inspires the respect and awe we all adore. There is no greater compliment than what compares you to a lion, right?
The holiday in honor of the most beautiful and scary creature in the animal kingdom was founded by the rescue organization Big Cat Rescue, which takes care of the rescue and well-being of big cats like tigers, lions, panthers, tigers and more.
Although the lion is such a powerful animal, it is also endangered and the number of lions in the wild is getting smaller every year. In the past there were lions in many parts of the world: in southern Europe, in large parts of Asia and in Africa. Today, there is a small population in Asia, with only a few hundred individuals, in a limestone forest in India, and in Africa there are only about 75,000 lions.
Unlike other animals that are hunted for meat, fur or fangs, the lions have people hunting just to show how brave they are. In 2015, an American hunter named Walter Palmer shot a lion known as Cecil, who was 13, who lives in the Huanga National Park in Zimbabwe. The lion Cecil (named after Cecil Rhodes, founder of Rhodesia), was named the king of the jungles of Zimbabwe. It was one of the most famous lions in Africa and was a tourist attraction. His killing provoked much outrage around the world.
In honor of International Lion Day, get some fascinating facts about the King of Beasts:
A male lion usually weighs more than 250 kg, but is still the second largest cat after the tiger.
The roar of the lion can be heard up to a distance of 8 km.
In the wild, male lions live 10 to 14 years.
The lioness performs 90% of the hunt.
All cats, from lions to domestic cats, do not feel sweet taste.
A porcupine can eliminate an entire flock of lions.
In 2005 a girl was brutally beaten in Ethiopia by 7 men who abducted her. A band of three lions came to her aid, drove the men away and chased after them. After that, the lions stayed with her until help came to her. (Source)
The adult lion has no natural enemies and stands at the top of the food chain, next to the tiger. No animal dares to mess with the lion except the hyena, who sometimes allows himself to steal the lions' prey when they are not there and only the lionesses guard.
