World Wildlife Day Art Competition

World Wildlife Day Art Competition

The theme for World Wildlife Day 2022 is ‘Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration.’ The theme seeks to highlight the most critically endangered species of wild fauna and flora and their role in ecosystems. The theme will also highlight the impact of conservation efforts and promote best practice examples where species were brought back from the brink, and it will seek to identify new solutions to conserve and sustainably use other species of wildlife.

Since all species in an ecosystem are crucial, this year’s World Wildlife Day will focus on highlighting the need for conservation of critically endangered species. As such, the Guyana Wildlife Conservation and Management Commission (GWCMC) is coordinating an Art Competition which would allow Primary school children to creatively display their interpretation of the World Wildlife Day theme.
