"Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration" announced as theme of World Wildlife Day 2022

2022年世界野生动植物日主题公布:“恢复关键物种 修复生态系统”

UN World Wildlife Day 2022 to raise awareness of the state of endangered and critically endangered wildlife, and to highlight the power of conservation efforts seeking to reverse their fate.



Geneva, 15 November 2021 - According to figures by the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species, over 8,400 species of wild fauna and flora are critically endangered, while close to 30,000 more are understood to be endangered or vulnerable. Based on these estimates, it is suggested that over a million species are threatened with extinction.



Continued loss of species and degradation of habitats and ecosystems threatens humanity as a whole, as people everywhere rely on wildlife and biodiversity-based resources to meet all their needs, from food, medicines and health to fuel, housing, and clothing.



The Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) announced today the theme of the United Nations World Wildlife Day 2022: "Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration". Leading up to the year when the post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework is expected to be adopted, drawing attention to the status of some of the most critically endangered species of wild fauna and flora and their role in ecosystems will send a powerful message for urgent commitment. The theme will also highlight the impact of conservation efforts and promote best practice examples where species were brought back from the brink, and it will drive discussions towards imagining and implementing new solutions to conserve and sustainably use others.

《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》(CITES)秘书处今天宣布了2022年联合国世界野生动物日的主题:“恢复关键物种 修复生态系统”。“2020年后全球生物多样性框架”预计在2022年通过,这将释放一个强有力的信号,敦促各方关注濒危野生动植物物种现状及其在生态系统中的作用。这个主题还将突出保护成效的影响,宣传拯救濒危物种的最佳实践案例,并将推动讨论如何设想和实施保护和可持续利用其他物种的新方案。


CITES Secretary-General Ivonne Higuero said: "Biodiversity loss is an existential threat to people and planet. The continued loss of wildlife species threatens to undermine entire ecosystems and puts into peril the well-being of all who rely on them. Yet, this is not inevitable: we have the power to change course and restore threatened species and their habitats. With the theme of “Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration”, we wish to inspire action towards reversing the fate of key species of animals and plants. It is our hope that World Wildlife Day will help chart a path towards a sustainable future, with the goal of living in harmony with nature. Ultimately, we hope to spur on the needed political will to adopt a robust post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and secure our common future."

CITES秘书长伊沃妮·伊格罗说:“生物多样性的丧失是对地球和人类生存的威胁。野生动植物物种的持续减少威胁着整个生态系统和所有依赖它们生存的人类。然而,这并非不可避免:我们有能力改变并恢复受胁物种数量及其栖息地。我们希望通过“恢复关键物种 修复生态系统”这个主题,鼓励人们采取行动扭转关键物种的命运。我们希望世界野生动物日可以帮我们描绘出一条人与自然和谐共生的、通往可持续发展未来的道路。最重要的是我们希望激发必要的政治意愿,通过一个强有力的“2020年后全球生物多样性框架”,保护我们的共同未来。”


The Day also aims to support all ongoing efforts towards the accomplishment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in particular Goals 1 (No Poverty), 2 (Zero hunger) 12 (Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns), 13 (Climate Action) 14 (Life Below Water) and 15 (Life on Land) as biodiversity and healthy ecosystems are a foundation for sustainable development.



The CITES Secretariat, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and other UN system organizations, Member States, biodiversity-related conventions, and private sector and civil society actors, are unrolling a series of global online activities around World Wildlife Day 2022.



This includes a high-level online event on 3 March 2022, a film showcase organized with Jackson Wild and UNDP, and an international youth art competition organized with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

包括2022年3月3日举办高级别线上活动、与联合国开发计划署(UNDP)和杰克逊·怀尔德(Jackson Wild)组织的电影展示活动以及与国际爱护动物基金会(IFAW)组织的国际青少年艺术比赛。


In line with the UN General Assembly Resolution proclaiming World Wildlife Day, the CITES Secretariat calls on all member States and organizations of the United Nations system and other global, regional and sub-regional organizations, non-governmental organizations and all interested individuals, to:



observe and raise awareness of the theme for World Wildlife Day;

involve indigenous peoples and rural and local communities with experience and knowledge in the use and conservation of vulnerable species and ecosystems in all World Wildlife Day events and celebrations;

associate the celebrations with major national and international conservation events;

build collaborative partnerships;

make use of the World Wildlife Day logos as widely as possible.
