Yesterday was World Animal Day, an international celebration of all the amazing creatures we share this planet with. It was conceived in 1931 at an ecology convention in Florence, with October 4th chosen as the date because it coincided with the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
I don’t think a single day is enough to celebrate the animal kingdom, so let’s make it a week-long celebration here on Where’s my backpack? Here are a few endearing creatures I’ve met on my travels.
If you’d like to join in, here’s what to do:
- Create your own post about animals and title it Travel Theme: Animals
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes.
It doesn’t have to be about wildlife; you can write an ode to your neighbour’s moggy if you like! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
