‘Zero Tolerance for the Illegal Wildlife Trade’
Each year there’s a new theme and a new global host country where official celebrations take place. This year WED is focussing on the illegal trade in wildlife under their slogan ‘Go Wild for Life’ and the host is Angola.
WED says that we need to end the demand for illegal wildlife products and we can all do this together, no matter where we are in the world. If we pull together and create an awareness to push the governments and international bodies into enforcing tougher laws against illegal wildlife products, we’ll emerge with a stronger, more ethical world.
The success of WED is based on a ‘strength in numbers’ ethos. The greater the number of people who get involved means the more coverage and support important environmental issues will receive.
