Crazy Challenge Connection discussion on goodreads

March 2017 Scavenger Challenge - World Wildlife Day
Timeframe: 3/1/17 to 3/31/17

World Wildlife Day is held on March 3 every year. This is a great opportunity for people around the world to celebrate wildlife, both fauna and flora. Everyone is encouraged to get involved in this global celebration. A great variety of events, at local and national levels, are offered, ranging from exhibitions and contests to national parks visits and conferences.

1. On 3/3/73, the United Nations General Assembly took a stand to protect Endangered Species throughout the world. CITES was put into place (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) to ensure that the world does not continue to lose species that would never be seen again.
* Read a book whose title starts with a letter in CITES (disregard A, An, The) -OR- a book where a character takes a stand and/or defends their point of view.

2. On 12/20/13, the UN declared that each year World Wildlife Day would be dedicated to a new purpose and idea to keep people informed about the changing nature of our world and the treasures we stand to lose from the animal and plant kingdoms if we don’t take care. It declared the day out of concern that wildlife crime had negative economic, environmental and social impacts worldwide.
* Read a book with an animal AND a person on the cover (show us the cover) -OR- a book originally published in 2013.

3. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon proclaimed, "On this World Wildlife Day, I call on all citizens, businesses and governments to play their part in protecting the world’s wild animals and plants. The actions taken by each of us will determine the fate of the world’s wildlife. The future of wildlife is in our hands!"
* Read a book with quotes at the beginning of each chapter -OR- a book with hands on the cover (show us the cover) -OR- a book with an honorific in the title (Sir, Mr., Dr., etc.).

4. In its resolution, the General Assembly reaffirmed the intrinsic value of wildlife and its various contributions, including ecological, genetic, social, economic, scientific, educational, cultural, recreational and aesthetic, to sustainable development and human well-being.
*Read a book whose author's first AND last initial can be found in any of the following words: ecological - genetic - social - economic - scientific - educational - cultural - recreational - aesthetic -OR- a book with some sort of political figure in the story (either real or fictional).

5. This day is an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, it reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.
* Read a book with some sort of plant on the cover (show us the cover) -OR- a book with CRIME on the main GR genre page.
What Love Can Do (Home to Green Valley #1) by Virna DePaul What Love Can Do Virna DePaul 3/2/17

7. Poaching and trafficking in wildlife, driven by transnational organized crime groups, pose the most immediate threat to many species. Wildlife trade is one of the most profitable illicit trades in the world, estimated at up to $10 billion annually. Illegal wildlife trade of elephant ivory, rhino horns, and tiger products is widespread in many countries, particularly in Asia and Africa. It is controlled by dangerous crime syndicates that traffic wildlife like drugs or weapons.
