World Wildlife Day 2021

What better excuse to take another look at the 83 species of South African wildlife that we featured here at de Wets Wild in the past year than World Wildlife Day?

      I agree with you wholeheartedly, Carol, and knowing how many people work so very hard every day to keep these places and their inhabitants safe for the benefit of all South Africans I am sure they will.

      Thanks very much, Anne. There’s still so much more to see and learn of our country’s wildlife, so I hope we’ll be able to do the same again next year.

      Thanks, TasView.
      Some time ago the term “wildlife” was usually used in reference to undomesticated vertebrates specifically, but these days its definition is much more broad and, to quote from the World Wildlife Day website “UN World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the worldโ€™s wild animals and plants.” I think it’s good that the entire wild ecosystem gets attention.
