The theme for this year’s World Wildlife Day event is, “Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation”. Hosted by the UN Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES), Amazon Conservation will be sharing about the role that our partners play in advancing our mission to achieve a thriving Amazon. Attendees will learn how our strategic partnership with our sister organizations on-the-ground in Peru and Bolivia serves to strengthen the impact of both local and international organizations and missions. Join us and CITES on Friday, March 3rd at 10am EST for the free live stream of the event.
This event is free and open to all. A recording will be provided to those who register. Space is limited, so register ASAP.
Almost all successful conservation efforts depend upon cooperation. It is such an important and complex subject that no one government or organization can tackle the issue without collaboration and sharing of information, experience, and expertise. To highlight this important fact, the theme this year has been chosen as, “Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation”.
The idea of a partnership inevitably means different things to different people. Some will see the most impactful conservation partnerships as taking place at the international level between organizations, while others may see small groups living alongside nature as having the most beneficial partnership for wildlife conservation.
In order to capture as many different partnerships as possible, WWD 2023 will focus on partnerships at three levels: international; regional and national; and local. Amazon Conservation has been invited to speak to our unique position at all three of these levels thanks to our alliance partnerships on-the-ground in Peru and Bolivia.
“Partnership stories”, i.e. successful case studies, will be identified for each of these three groupings to illustrate that work needs to be done at all levels in order to safeguard the future of species currently threatened with extinction, and to secure a healthier planet for all.
It will allow the celebration of all conservation efforts, from intergovernmental to local scale. Within this theme, the day seeks to generate discussions and awareness on two sub-topics: business & finance; and marine life & oceans.
Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLC) and Youth representatives will be specifically invited to contribute to the “partnership stories”, as two stakeholder groups that have been working towards ensuring meaningful representation.
