World Animal Day?
If you love animals, then you should put World Animal Day on your calendar or in your diary. It takes place each year on the 4th of October.
When did it start?
It all started in Italy in 1931 at an ecology conference. The scientists wanted to highlight the plight of endangered species. People were concerned about this even at the beginning of the last century
Where is it celebrated?
 Today the day celebrates all kinds of animal life. Many countries around the world hold different activities and events. It is on October the 4th because this is the day of St Francis of Assisi, who is the patron saint of animals. Anyone, from any religion, background or country celebrates this important day.

Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forested land, 20 pounds CO2 equivalent, and one animal’s life.
Nothing is accelerating climate change and environmental degradation more than the meat and dairy industry. If you call yourself an environmentalist, it’s probably time to put your foot (and your burger) down.
While animal cruelty was not my main motivation for transitioning to a plant-based diet, I can’t argue with it either. Millions of animals are killed each year for meat. A massive portion of which are raised exclusively in factory farms
