Flora and fauna


World Wildlife Day

On March 3, international awareness is raised about the flora and fauna that inhabit our planet.

In 2013, the United Nations (UN) proclaimed March 3 as World Wildlife Day, a date that seeks to celebrate the flora and fauna that inhabit the planet and raise awareness among the population about its importance.

Among the contributions that flora and fauna make to the planet – reaffirmed by the UN on the day they decided to proclaim Nature Day – are economic, scientific, educational, ecological, cultural, aesthetic, and many more. Among them, the contribution to sustainable development and the well-being of humanity stand out.

The flora and fauna are vital for the subsistence of the planet and of the human being and in Estancia Bahía Esperanza you can find a great diversity of it.
