The theme for World Wildlife Day 2018 is 'Big Cats: Predators under Threat'
Nature Iraq, in collaboration with Sulaimani University, Komar Univeristy, the AUIS Environment Keepers, interns, and volunteers; will celebrate World Wildlife Day to raise awareness on the conservation of threatened animals, specifically the Persian Leopard in Iraqi Kurdistan. The event will be held at Majidi Mall in Sulaymaniyah-Iraq, on March 3rd, at 6:00-8:00 PM.
The event activities will include:
Handing out an infographic brochure about the Persian Leopard and the importance of protecting this flagship species, in Kurdish language.
We will distribute handmade Leopard masks on sticks for kids.
Photos of people at the event will be taken with the WWD2018 action cards.
The WWD posters will be distributed.
The WWD2018 advocacy video as well as our Persian Leopard Conservation project video will be screened.
Signatures will be collected to enforce the local government to make protected areas creation a priority, using the Leopard as a flagship species. We will post our event activities to Nature Iraq websites, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
Our members are invited to attend this event. Help us celebrate this day and raise awareness on the conservation of the Persian Leopard in Kurdistan. Let's build a better future together, for us and the wildlife.
