World Wildlife day 2019's theme is Life below water for people & planet.
Our impact on our marine life is under BIG scrutiny at the moment, what with tons of plastics being washed up on our beaches, in turn harming & even killing local marine life, birds and even large mammals.
Marine life is essentially it's own world.. from the tiny plankton and shrimps to shellfish, fish and larger mammals. The ocean is diverse and plays a massive part on our health and well being #BLUEMIND as well as the health of the entire planet.
"HAPPY World Wildlife Day 2019"
Attached below are some pictures took underwater.. from plastic pollution to my dog Suki & also.. my first ever living thing! Can i get a MASSSSSSIVE cheer for my Shrimp Photo! ;)
Thank You! X

\\nThe UNGA resolution also designated the CITES Secretariat as the facilitator for the global observance of this special day for wildlife on the UN calendar. World Wildlife Day has now become the most important global annual event dedicated to wildlife."
