Expo 2020 Dubai to invite and inspire contemplation on preserving wildlife and biodiversity


World Expo 2020 Dubai highlights harmonious living with flora and fauna and technology alike in an artistic depiction of futuristic sustainability.

Expo 2020 Dubai will join hands with the UN Environment Programme and the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment to shed light on the world’s endangered biodiversity in a combined observation of World Wildlife Day 2021.

Celebrated on March 3 annually, UN World Wildlife Day is observed to raise awareness of nature’s inimitable contribution and hand in maintaining a sustainable planet.

With Expo Dubai’s ambitious challenge to hold the greenest Expo ever, its novel partnership with the UN and MOCCAE aptly reflects its commitment to uphold the event’s Sustainability subtheme.

A thorough commemoration will see Expo 2020 deck its World Wildlife Day agenda with panoply of scheduled special events including an exhibition of conservation projects by country participants and a gathering of green thinkers with a mission to safeguard wildlife, headed by philanthropists, artists and experts.

World Wildlife Day 2021 marks one of the 13 international days Expo 2020 Dubai looks forward to celebrating starting October this year until April.

Undertaking an unprecedented marriage of nature and technological advancement, Expo has dedicated an entire wing of its venue, titled Sustainability District, to showcase green initiatives from all over the world.

Moreover, the World’s Greatest Show is equipped with natural solutions for waste, energy, water and construction, sworn to minimising the event’s carbon footprint without disrupting the surrounding flora and fauna.

Earlier in March, the UAE MOCCAE imposed a temporary trade ban on sharks, Arabian safi (emperor) and sheri (rabbitfish) to prevent species depletion.
