The Wild World We Share

Let's donate

Celebrate the wonders of the animal kingdom this WORLD ANIMAL DAY by getting the facts about the species we share our planet with — and the ones that need our help the most.

Today is an exciting day at VAKOVAKO — not only because it’s the official launch of our global giving app — but because it’s a day for animals…all 2.13 million of them!

We can wildly believe it!

  • It’s not conclusive how many animals there are in the world — because even after 200 years of classification, we still haven’t seen them all. But popular estimates suggest 2.13 million animals exist today, although others believe this number could actually be as high as 100 million.
  • Nearly all (97%) of animals are invertebrates — including insects, which, by some estimates, there are nearly 10 quintillion of them.
  • Despite only 8% being protected, oceans contain the majority of animal biomass.

The most at risk, the most in need — the ones you can help today.
