Secretary-General's message on World Wildlife Day [scroll down for French version]

Each year, on World Wildlife Day, we celebrate the beauty and wonder of our planet’s wild plants and animals.  Why do we care about wildlife?  Beyond a moral duty to sustain the Earth, humanity depends on the essential products and services that nature provides, from food and fresh water to pollution control and carbon storage.  By damaging the natural world, we threaten our own well-being.
