(QNO) - The programme called Tam Ky - a city without bushmeat has recently been launched by the Tam Ky city People’s Committee in coordination with the USAID Biodiversity Conservation, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and the Provincial Forest Protection Department.
The event is aimed at responding to World Wildlife Day 2023 (March 3).
Currently, wildlife species are under threats of climate change, environmental pollution, diseases, hunting and over exploitation.
Illegal hunting, trade and consumption are considered the main causes of the dramatic reduction in wildlife populations.
Moreover, humans are under the bad impact of wildlife consumption, such as disease transmission, being jailed, and ecological imbalance.
Responding to the theme for World Wildlife Day this year - Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation, Tam Ky calls for not consuming or trading illegal wildlife and wildlife products; not hunting and capturing wildlife.
At the event, there was an impressive performance art telling the importance of wildlife and of wildlife conservation, thereby calling for preserving wild animals and plants.
