REUTERS: International Biodiversity Day has been claimed an outstanding success by a spokesman for leading unelected international governmental body, the United Nations.
"We are extremely pleased by the results from the day, not least because all UN employees had the day off and got to watch Dr Phil and Judge Judy," said the spokesman. "This clip from Youtube demonstrates that the message is definitely getting through."
However, a spokeswoman for leading animal welfare body, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has slammed the UN.
"I appreciated the day off, however, on returning to work, we were horrified to learn that the UN has been taking International Biodiversity Day too far. Had we known that the day would have involved dolphins being eaten by orcas, we definitely would not have leant our support, and we will not be supporting the day next year."
