Stop Poaching [Infographic]

Wildlife crime is now the most urgent threat to many of the worldโ€™s species. Incredible giants like elephants and rhinos could be gone from the world before your children would have the chance to coexist with these beautiful and intelligent animals that have roamed Earth for more than 50 million years.

Illegal wildlife trade has sadly exploded to meet a yet increasing demand for elephant ivory, rhino horns and tiger products. The trade is controlled by dangerous crime syndicates who carelessly traffic wildlife much like drugs or weapons.

Prices for the animal parts are rocket-high and is driving the giants to the edge of extinction. Violent slaughterings happen every day so humans can have ornament souvenirs or effectless medications originated from highly endangered species that are being chased, abducted and murdered in their own natural habitats.

Environmental Dates: International Day for Biodiversity

The United Nations has proclaimed May 22 The International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues.

When first created by the Second Committee of the UN General Assembly in late 1993, 29 December (the date of entry into force of the Convention of Biological Diversity), was designated The International Day for Biological Diversity. In December 2000, the UN General Assembly adopted 22 May as IDB, to commemorate the adoption of the text of the Convention on 22 May 1992 by the Nairobi Final Act of the Conference for the Adoption of the Agreed Text of the Convention on Biological Diversity. This was partly done because it was difficult for many countries to plan and carry out suitable celebrations for the date of 29 December, given the number of holidays that coincide around that time of year.
