Application Deadline: June 30th, 2016
Samsung Engineering jointly with United Nations Environment Programme would like to launch “The 9th Eco-generation Environmental Essay Competition” inviting young people all over the world to raise awareness on the theme of the upcoming World Environment Day – The fight against illegal trade in wildlife.
100,000 African elephants were killed between 2010 and 2012, out of a population estimated at less than 500,000, just to supply a demand for products made of ivory items like jewelry and carvings that are used for gifts. Pangolins, unknown to most of us, are the most illegally trafficked animal on earth with millions being used for medicinal value and food delicacy.
Rhino poaching increased by 8 900% since 2007 their horns used for medicines and hang over cures. Most of these products, which have good or much better alternatives, are related in some ways for showing status. If we don’t take action, these beautiful animals could disappear forever.
