World Animal Day: The importance of animals in our lives

October 4 was designated World Animal Day because it coincides with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, who has been proclaimed by the Catholic Church as the patron saint of animals and nature. It was first celebrated in 1931 at a conference of environmentalists in Florence, as a way of raising public and scientific awareness of endangered animals. Since then, the feast day has expanded to include all species of the animal kingdom.
