ROME: Dozens of people in Rome showed their support for CATWalk 2022, to raise awareness of the conservation of the world’s big-cat species, with a walk in the biggest park in the heart of Italy’s capital.
A crowd mostly composed of students, well-known local researchers and journalists took part in the event in Villa Borghese, organized by the Saudi Embassy in Rome.
They all joined the invitation to get active as a way of underlining the need that big cats have for their natural habitats.
The walk ended with speeches in front of the Galleria Borghese, one of the most prestigious museums in Rome.
“The effects of climate change make it increasingly evident that the wellbeing of humanity, wildlife and the environments we depend on are all intrinsically intertwined,” said the head of the media office and spokesman for the embassy, Ali Alomarey.
“Today we parade in support of CATWalk to raise awareness in the community on the need to preserve biodiversity, and in particular big cats, and safeguard our planet for collective wellbeing.”
