Rate: 0 Flag

Today is World Animal Day Celebrated Worldwide.

 KingDom is one of the Planetpals in charge of animals and endangered species

World Animal Day is celebrated each year on 4 October. It started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. Since then it has grown to encompass all kinds of animal life and is widely celebrated in countries throughout the world. October 4 was chosen as World Animal Day as it is the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.


Did you know that as many as 11 million species could be living on the planet!
