World Wildlife Day, which is observed each year on March 3, was celebrated in 2018 on the theme "Big cats: predators under threat".
The international day is a United Nations initiative that coincides with the anniversary of the signature of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, an international agreement between governments to regulate international trade in wild species of animals and plants to ensure that their survival does not become threatened by such trade. Big cats are among the most widely recognized and admired animals across the globe. However, today these charismatic predators are facing many and varied threats, which are mostly caused by human activities.
