Some of our happiest moments have been spent in the wild, marvelling at the majesty of the animal kingdom. This planet is theirs as much as ours. Let’s be the voice of the voiceless – speak out against cruelty, empower conservation. #WorldWildlifeDay pic.twitter.com/TrAfxLU2o9— TinaAmbani (@AmbaniTina) March 3, 2020
