CITES Conference of the PartiesTrade is inevitable. Biodiversity is not.
"The International Fund for Animal Welfare is teaming up with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on an art contest for kids from 4-18 to celebrate World Wildlife Day (WWD) on 2019! The theme for WWD 2019 is Life Below Water so this year's art contest will be marine focused and aims to help youth build a sense of connection with the marine world, which is key to achieving Sustainable Development Goal14 regarding conserving and sustainably using ocean resources. The winning entry will be announced and the artist will be a guest of honor at the high-level WWD event at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, NY, on March 1, 2019. The contest will be held on line and I (Monica) am very excited to be helping to judge! So ODP kids out there, if you want to make a big splash for ocean wildlife, enter by clicking here."
