World Animal Day as the name suggests is a day entirely dedicated to the existence of the animal life in all its forms across the world. Started in the year 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence, World Animal Day highlights the plight of endangered species around the world. Since then, every year on 4th October, this day is celebrated as a mark of remembering and paying tribute to all the animals.
Keeping in view the following missions, World Animal Day was declared by the United Nations to be celebrated on 4th October to:
– Celebrate animal life in all its forms
– Celebrate humankind’s relationship with the animal kingdom
– Acknowledge the diverse roles that animals play in our lives –from being our companions, supporting and helping us, to brining a sense of wonder into our lives
– Acknowledge and be thankful for the way in which animals enrich our lives
The prime objective of celebrating World Animal Day is for the people to “use this special day to commemorate their love and respect for animals by doing something special to highlight their importance in the world. Increased awareness will lead the way to improved standards of animal welfare throughout the world.”
