Today is World Wildlife Day. Since its inception as discussed here, each year has its own theme. This year’s theme focuses on the youth with the message being, ‘Listen to Young Voices’. Isn’t this awesome!
Almost one quarter of the world’s population comprises of children between the ages of 10-24. This is a whole lot of people who definitely have a say for the natural resources that we have. They are obliged to still find and enjoy the wildlife and most likely share this natural resources with their own children.
I have a collection of statements from a diverse range of Youthful Voices stating why we should listen to the young voices, why they love wildlife and why wildlife should be protected as we commemorate World Wildlife Day.
