What do all these and so many more animals have in common?
They are endangered species!
So why should you care? They are not in your backyard, or maybe you don't think some of them are cute enough to care about....well check out who is endangered in YOUR backyard!
But now your thinking "what can I do, I am only one person." One person can make a difference! Why not tell Congress and the President that funding fish and wildlife conservation must be a priority. Why not send friends and family a FREE e-card. Making others aware is something anyone can do. You could also change your facebook photos in support for the day.
But the easiest thing you can do, if take your kids outside and enjoy nature. If it is raining, read them a nature book. Here are some endangered species coloring pages you can print off. Fostering compassion for nature in our children will make all the difference in the world!
So what are you doing this Endangered Species Day???
