- WORLD VEGAN DAY
The World Vegan Day is about raising awareness of the treatment of animals, the ethical issue of mass livestock, and the environmental effects of having livestock. This day also promotes the benefits of a vegan diet and veganism in general. The practice of not eating meat can be traced back to eastern Mediterranean and ancient Indian cultures. But the first time vegetarianism is recorded is by Pythagoras of Samos – the great Greek mathematician. Many followers of Buddhism are also promoters of vegetarianism as they do not want to inflict harm on other animals. World Vegan Day was started by the Vegan Society, a group that was created by Donald Watson, who was an English animal rights advocate. 1847 - First vegetarian society is formed. Begun in England, this group started meeting and 150 members were enrolled in a short period of time. The Vegan Society was established in November of 1944. In a 2018 Gallup poll from the US, 5% of American adults identified as vegetarian, and 2% as vegan. In an effort to help more people embrace the vegan lifestyle, Vegan Society launches the first ever vegan App, VeGuide, to help folks on their journey. In recent years plant-based meats became very popular and companies like Beyond Meat or Impossible Foods make their way with burgers without meat. Worldwide, the total consumption of such meat substitutes has grown from 133 million kilograms in 2013 to 470 million kilograms in 2020. Fewer animal products mean fewer greenhouse gasses, which means better earth for everyone.

- WORLD LEMUR DAY
This lovely creature lives only on one island in the world. Lemurs are the world’s oldest living primates. They have been evolving on the island of Madagascar for approximately 40 million years and they flourished in isolation without much competition or major predators. However, the migrations of humans onto the island about 2,000 years ago led to lemurs being restricted to around 10% of the land. Lemurs are considered the “creators of the forest”, fuelling the growth of plants in Madagascar forests. As fruit-lovers, they cannot digest fruit seeds; when lemurs travel throughout forests, they spread the seeds There are more than 100 lemur species and five families of living lemurs. Sadly, more than 90 % of lemur species today are threatened with extinction, and 31% are categorized as critically endangered. The “jewel of Madagascar” is threatened by a myriad of environmental issues, hunting, climate change, and the exotic pet trade. They are running out of resources for survival, largely due to habitat destruction and degradation. FACTS The northern sportive lemur is the rarest in the world. Lemurs have 2 tongues. Apart from humans, lemurs are the only other primates that have blue eyes. In Malagasy culture, lemurs are believed to have souls capable of getting revenge if wronged. There are 112 different species of lemurs, and all are native to Madagascar.

- INTERNATIONAL SNOW LEOPARD DAY
The elegant and well-camouflaged snow leopard is one of the world’s most elusive cats. Although called snow leopards, these big cats are more closely related to a tiger than a leopard. They’re usually at home in high, rugged mountain landscapes at heights of over 3,000 metres spread across 12 countries in central Asia. Snow leopards are important to their ecosystem because as top predators, they maintain the ecological balance by preying on mountain sheep and goats, preventing increases in herbivore populations and changes to the vegetation.They have extra large paws that are like a natural pair of snowshoes to prevent them from sinking into the snow. These elusive predators can kill prey that is three times their own weight. FACTS Snow leopards cannot roar because of the physiology of their throat. They are often heard purring, hissing or growling in a non-aggressive manner. Snow leopards have been known to leap as much as 30 feet. Snow leopards are around 55-65 centimeters in height and 90-115 centimeters in length. In 2016 snow leopard was put on UCN Red List of Threatened Species as vulnerable. According to estimates, there are only around 2700-3400 living in the wild. They are mostly affected by habitat loss and fragmentation, climate change and illegal wildlife trade.
