Bildschirmfoto 2014-09-22 um 09.09.57

Traditionally, October 4th is World Animal Day. For over 80 years, this day has been marked as the day to spread the word on animal awareness. There will be many events, here is one spread out over all continents:

In Defense of Animals is organizing a March for Elephants and Rhinos:

“In Africa, four elephants are illegally killed for their ivory every hour with only 300,000 to 500,000 alive today. Every nine hours a rhino is killed for his/her horn and it’s estimated that fewer than 22,000 African rhino now remain. In South Africa, more lions survive now in captivity, where they are bred for petting zoos and canned hunts, than roam in the wild. Poaching helps to support terrorist activities and is contributing to the destabilization of Africa – killing humans and animals. This tragic state of the world’s iconic animals will soon lead to their extinction, unless we collectively come together to reverse the current trend.”
