Listen up, fauna fanatics! Time to give a kingly roar, a shimmering trill, or a simple chirp of joy, because National Wildlife Day is on its way. This day will get even the laziest of couch potatoes ready to explore the Great Outdoors.
It's national wildlife day on the 4th September.
Need a hint? It's wild, it's full of life, and it has a day all its own. You guessed right - it's National Wildlife Day! This day is dedicated to raising awareness and appreciation for the world's wild animal kingdom. From the tiniest of ants to the grizzliest of bears, every creature counts and has its special place in the ecosystem.
Have you ever been so passionate about animals that you created a national day in their honor? That's exactly what Colleen Paige, animal advocate and pet lifestyle expert, did. She founded National Wildlife Day in 2005, in loving memory of wildlife enthusiast and former Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.
How do you mark this wild day, you ask? Now, we’re not telling you to embark on a Jungle Book style adventure (although that’d be cool). There are many safer, yet equally fun, ways to celebrate. Visit a local zoo, donate to a wildlife charity, or simply spend time watching a nature documentary - animal ones are the best! And don't forget to hop onto social media and share your wildlife moments using #NationalWildlifeDay. It’s a wild fiesta and everyone is invited!
On 4th September 2020, our website detected a record 8798 mentions of National Wildlife Day online. This isn't surprising, as the animal kingdom is largely respected and cherished worldwide.
