WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY 2022

Today, the 5th of June, the WVA celebrates the World Environment Day organized by UN #OnlyOneEarth.

The WVA position statement about the Global Climate Change Emergency established that “Veterinarians, in their role as advocates for animal health and welfare and public health, have a responsibility to protect ecosystem health and demand action to minimize climate change.”

On this day, WVA calls on all veterinarians worldwide to unite in the celebration of World Environment Day 2022 and consider what veterinarians can do to protect the environment in which we live and work.
