The Philippines is archipelagic and very rich in diverse and indigenous flora and fauna. March 3 is World Wildlife Day. We commemorate this day of conservation awareness with a mixed media masterpiece from the Lopez Museum Collection:

United Nations – World Wildlife Day

March 3 is World Wildlife Day. It is an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.

Wildlife has an intrinsic value and contributes to the ecological, genetic, social, economic, scientific, educational, cultural, recreational and aesthetic aspects of sustainable development and human well-being. For these reasons, all member States, the United Nations system and other international organizations, as well as civil society, non-governmental organizations and individuals, are invited to observe and to get involved in this global celebration of wildlife.
