Engage youth in biodiversity conservation, urges UN ahead of World Wildlife Day
Ahead of World Wildlife Day -2017 on March 3, while announcing the theme of the observance as "Listening to the young voices" UN has urged the world community to provide incentives to the youth to tackle conservation issues by engaging with one another and together forge an inspired path to a better world.

"Habitat loss, climate change and poaching are among the most alarming challenges faced by wildlife today. Poaching and trafficking of wildlife is now the most immediate threat to many species, whether charismatic or less known," stated the UN.

The UN added that the fate of the world's wildlife would be soon in the hands of the next generation. The pressing need for enhanced action to ensure the survival of wildlife in its natural habitats must be imparted from generation to generation, and the youth should have the opportunity to communicate the conservation goals to a wider society.

According to the UN, engaging and empowering the youth in 183 Member States, CITES as one of the world's most powerful tools for biodiversity conservation through the regulation of trade in wild fauna and flora, we can ensure conservation of the wildlife.
