World Wildlife Day

Wednesday, March 4th 2020

The 3rd March was World Wildlife Day. On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 3 March – the day of signature of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973 – as UN World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. This inspired Mathew Allen from Army Communications to create a short film about Foxglove for social media. With some creative ideas, Mathew made the best of some sunny spells in all areas of the reserve.

The short video is available to view on both the Army in the North and the Foxglove Covert FaceBook pages and is also on Twitter and highlights the importance of Foxglove in terms of biodiversity and its engagement with the local community (both military and civilian).

Our thanks to Mathew for supporting us and helping to raise the profile of the reserve.
