Today, 3rd March 2020 Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF), Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism and its agencies, together with other wildlife practitioners are commemorating the world wildlife day at the College of African Wildlife Management Mweka (CAWM), Moshi-Kilimanjaro.

On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 3rd 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.

World Wildlife Day is celebrated in 2020 under the theme "Sustaining all life on Earth", encompassing all wild animal and plant species as key components of the world's biodiversity. This aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goals 1, 12, 14 and 15, and their wide-ranging commitments on alleviating poverty, ensuring sustainable use of resources, and on conserving life both on land and below water to halt biodiversity loss.

In Tanzania, world wildlife day is commemorated at the College of African Wildlife Management Mweka (CAWM). The event started on 29th February and 03rd March  marks the peak where various wildlife stakeholders including CSOs, academic institutions, researchers and government representatives are all at CAWM Mweka Moshi Kilimanjaro sharing their experiences on wildlife conservation through exhibitions, presentations and outdoor activities.
