World Animal Day: A celebration in 17 photos


October 4, 2015 /Photography News/ World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October 4, since 1931 when a group of ecologists hoping to get attention for the plight of endangered species introduced it at a convention in Florence, Italy. October 4 was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment. The day is now set aside as a time to reflect on all of the animals we share this world with, and our involvement with them - and to spur action to commemorate that respectful relationship. Below is a collection of old photos of animals around the world (17 photos).
