How much do we know about the underwater world? The answer is very less. Mysterious and beautiful, we have managed only to discover a small portion of this incredible world. Proclaimed in 2013, the UN declared March 3 as the World Wildlife Day. Since then, it is celebrated with total gusto all across the world. This year the UN is celebrating this day with their theme of ‘life below the water’. The aim of this is not just appreciating the beauty of underwater life but also conserving it.
Quite naturally, #WorldWildlifeDay is trending on Twitter. Netizens and celebs are grabbing this opportunity to share their love for animals. Here are some of the posts that will make you go aww.
