The world comes together every year on March 3rd to celebrate wildlife and raise awareness of the issues facing our wild animals.
It’s an important day as we grapple with a global extinction crisis and increasing habitat loss taking a devastating toll on endangered species. Since 1970, we have lost 60% of the world’s mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. 
We have an urgent responsibility to act as Australia is leading the world on extinction. We have the highest number of mammals declared extinct, with many of the 29 wiped out in the last decade. 
Scientists feared that even more animals will be pushed to extinction, including our most iconic native animal – the koala. Unless we act.
