Get involved with World Animal Day
October 4, 2012 is fast approaching and people all over the globe are gearing up to participate in the long-running World Animal Day.
World Animal Day is a global celebration of non-human animals that was created out of a 1931 convention in Florence as a means of bringing attention to endangered animals. Since its inception, World Animal Day has grown immensely in size and every October 4, people from all parts of the planet create events that focus on improving conditions for all types of creatures.
An official website allows organisers of World Animal Day events to list their plans and visitors to the site can search events by continents and countries. Some examples of events planned for 2012 World Animal Day include:
- a march along the main avenue in Mexico City
- an adoption dog walk in the Bahamas
- an adopt a dolphin competition across the UK
Make sure you check out the World Animal Day website to find an event near you. Or better still, get creative with your own event and have it listed on the website!
