World Wildlife Day 2022

3rd March 2022 is World Wildlife Day with a theme of ‘Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration’ and there are plenty of ways for your to take part and raise awareness in the North East of England.

‘By simply taking an interest in this year’s upcoming event and celebrations, you can help us raise awareness of the status of the world’s endangered and critically endangered species, the key role they play for their ecosystems and for the well-being of communities who live near them and beyond, and of the need to continue all efforts to conserve them and their habitats.’

A good place to start celebrations and raise awareness is by getting to know the species that face most urgent threats in your area and how you and your community can help conserve them. Learn about the initiatives already in the North East and how they are working to encourage biodiversity and reverse ecological collapse through re-wilding, conservation, improving waterways and introducing pollinator parks.

Climate Action North, Durham Wildlife Trust and many organisations in the North East community are working hard every day to build a future where our relationship to threatened species and delicate ecosystems is more balanced and sustainable.

If you want to learn more about Climate Action, you can find tools and support with Going Green Together, and if you want to get involved, take a look at our events page to see what’s coming up in the North East.
