Born Free USA to Use World Wildlife Day, March 3, as Platform to Highlight Horrific Wildlife Trade Issue
Washington D.C. -- The United Nations is highlighting the intrinsic values and contributions of wild animals and plants, particularly endangered and protected species, by declaring March 3, 2014 as World Wildlife Day. Born Free USA, a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, will use this platform to increase awareness about the deleterious wildlife trade.
It may seem harmless to feed breadcrumbs to ducks, or to leave picnic scraps for other wildlife—but it can hurt both animals and humans. Human foods can cause serious health problems for wildlife. And, this feeding can condition animals to approach humans to look for food, creating dangerous changes in their natural behaviors.
