IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action) campaign has organized a scientific workshop on "Protection of Urban Biocenosis", aimed at calling on people to protect homeless animals.
The event was held on the occasion of the International Homeless Animals Day, marked on 16 August annually. Expert of the interactive workshop was PhD in biological sciences Elchin Sultanov.
The event noted that every year 5-7 million animals in the world are sheltered. Despite this, 3-4 million homeless dogs and cats perish.
The humanity suffers a big blow from such losses. IDEA calls on people to be more attentive in protecting plant and animal species, understand the importance of the biological balance and protect it.
The IDEA Campaign was launched by Vice-president of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Leyla Aliyeva.
Primary objective of the campaign is to create real and virtual youth networks in order to seek solution of environmental issues at local and international levels, to inform them of the challenges facing the Earth and implement local and international projects in this field. /AzerTac/
