UNDP marks World Wildlife Day with unique virtual photograph exhibition
March 5, 2023
Marking World Wildlife Day on 3rd March 2023, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has launched the first ever virtual wildlife photography exhibition to raise awareness about conservation.
The photographs on display are the outcomes of UNDP’s #Click4Wildlife social media campaign which was launched on 23rd February.
“Marking World Wildlife Day, 3rd March 2023, we took the opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that their conservation provides to people,” UNDP Bangladesh Resident Representative Stefan Liller said.
“At the same time, to remind the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime and human-induced reduction of species, which have wide-ranging economic, environmental, and social impacts,” he added.
UNDP’s Head of Communications Md Abdul Quayyum said, “Since the theme this year was ‘Partnerships for wildlife conservation’, we decided highlight wildlife photographers, who play a key role in raising awareness.”
“Highlighting their work amongst the digital audience helped us showcase the diversity of Bangladesh’s wildlife to the mass audience,” he added.
The online campaign called for submissions of wildlife photographs in Bangladesh on the social media. 25 photographs were selected based on the likes/reactions on the posts.
The virtual gallery is available on UNDP’s website at #Click4Wildlife: Virtual Photo Exhibition | United Nations Development Programme (undp.org)
