World Wildlife Day celebrates and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. This year World Wildlife Day looks at life below water for people and the planet, which aligns with goal 14 of UN Sustainable Development Goals. This is the first World Wildlife Day to focus on life below water.

The ocean contains nearly 200,000 identified species, but actual numbers may be in the millions. Over three billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods. Marine wildlife has sustained human civilization and development for millennia, from providing food and nourishment, to material for handicraft and construction. It has also enriched our lives culturally, spiritually, and recreationally in different ways.

Donate Items From Around The House

I was truly unaware of the household items local shelters can use to further their daily mission – love and support abandoned animals. It has been my kids that have educated me about regular household items that support local shelters. Old towels, household cleaning supplies, House training pads, Paper towels, Trash bags: 45 gallon or larger, AA, AAA and D batteries, Cotton balls, Sandwich bags, Disinfecting wipes, Lint rollers, and Kleenex. Check with your local shelter and double check what they do need. But look around your house and donate any of these items.

Volunteer – It Just Takes An Hour

Shelters. Rescues. These places only exist because people committed their time to make them a reality. They continue to flourish because of employees and volunteers who continue to give their time. It doesn’t have to be a lot of time. An hour a week, even an hour a month. Anything and everything helps. You could help with the adoption paperwork and interviews. You could help clean the facility, or mow the lawn. You could walk the dogs, or scratch the cats. You could help give them baths. You could read to them, or maybe even sing? There are so many volunteer positions that go beyond walking a dog or scratching the belly of a cat. Time is precious, and even more precious when you volunteer.

Take the time and check out The 365give Challenge. Giving every day, one simple give, makes a difference in the lives of others and yourself.
