The world attaches great importance to animal protection and adopts laws, regulations and policies to protect wild animals and plants, maintain ecological balance and ensure harmonious coexistence between human beings and animals. In addition, there are many local regulations and organisations dedicated to advancing the cause of animal protection. These measures aim to ensure that animals are properly cared for and respected, while protecting the natural resources and biodiversity of the planet.
Animal protection policies in countries around the globe play an important role in protecting wildlife, maintaining ecological balance and advocating animal welfare. Through laws and regulations, the delineation of protected areas, animal welfare education and international cooperation, we are working together to create a safer and more sustainable living environment for wild animals and to protect the precious natural resources and biodiversity on Earth.
