San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance celebrates its partners in conservation, global collaborations on international World Wildlife Day

SAN DIEGO, March 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- On World Wildlife Day, San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance (SDZWA) is proud to celebrate our nearly 500 partnerships across 17 countries that support the values of this special United Nations' day recognizing vulnerable plants and animals ? and the people working together to save them amid changing landscapes.

"We collaborate with people, communities, corporations, NGOs, and governments, all of whom share our mission to save species and ecosystems, and our vision for a world where all life thrives," said SDZWA President and CEO Paul A. Baribault. "We approach all our efforts and partnerships with the critical understanding that collaboration is fundamental for effective and sustainable conservation action."

"Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation" is the theme of this year's World Wildlife Day, which also is a celebration of CITES, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of wild fauna and flora, which was signed 50 years ago today. SDZWA is celebrating two years of adding "Wildlife Alliance" to its title, emphasizing the importance of its conservation partnerships.

"San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance partnerships are a living and growing representation of what CITES stands for, and those involved with its inception hoped to achieve," Baribault said. "From the savannas of Kenya to the Amazonian forests to classrooms in Hawai'i, our network of global conservation partners makes our collective work possible."
