Wildlife is an ecological term for nature in its natural state, undisturbed by human economic activity; untouched and largely uncontrolled by humans, where local biodiversity, ecosystem processes and intact nature (rocks, mountains, water bodies, etc.) are maintained. In these areas, wildlife is reproduced naturally, supporting self-regulation through internal processes. A wildlife site can also, to a certain extent, act as a cultural landscape in which one or another Aboriginal people live for many years.
Wildlife sites are able to withstand insignificant and non-aggressive human influence to the extent that natural processes continue to evolve. In a number of countries (e.g., the United States), the term “wildlife” is used in legislation, and there are laws that limit the anthropogenic impact on areas not affected by human activities.
World Wildlife Day has been celebrated on 3 March 2014 by a decision of the UN General Assembly.
