World Environment Day is marked globally. It aims to inspire more people to take action to prevent the growing strain on planet Earth’s natural systems from reaching the breaking point.

The theme this year, Go Wild for Life encourages people to spread the word about wildlife crime and the damage it does, and to challenge all those around, to take necessary action to prevent it.

This year’s World Environment Day celebrations are hosted by Angola, a country seeking to restore its elephant herds, conserve Africa’s biodiversity-rich wildlife, and safeguard the environment as it continues to rebuild after more than a quarter-century of civil war.

Since its inception in 1974, World Environment Day has developed into a global platform for raising awareness and taking action on increasingly urgent issues from marine pollution and global warming,to sustainable consumption and wildlife crime.
