World Zoonoses Day was instituted on 6 July 1885 to educate and raise awareness about zoonotic diseases that can transmit from animals to humans

Zoonotic diseases were acquired by humans through hunting and consumption of wild animals initially and then through domestication

It commemorates French biologist Louis Pasteur, who administered the first dose of the first vaccine against rabies
