RECENTLY, the world rallied around wildlife during the second-annual World Wildlife Day, a day proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 2013.
Long before it was called World Wildlife Day, however, March 3rd was known on the continent as Africa Environment Day, established by the African Union in 2002, and later held in conjunction with Wangari Maathai Day. This is for good reason.
The value of wildlife to Africa is enormous.
