Celebrate Endangered Species Day!

Celebrate Endangered Species Day!

    1. Petition by


Endangered Species Day is a celebration of our nation's wildlife and wild places.  America is blessed with amazing wildlife: bald eagles and peregrine falcons flying in our skies, gray wolves and grizzly bears roaming the wilderness, Canada lynx and spotted owls in ancient forests, salmon and steelhead spawning in wild rivers, and whales and sea turtles in our coastal waters.

Celebrate Endangered Species Day and our nation's amazing wildlife and wild places. Started in 2006 by the United States Congress, Endangered Species Day is the third Friday of May.

Celebrate Endangered Species Day on May 15th and throughout the month of May:

· Learn about endangered species in your area.

· Provide habitat for wildlife and native plants in your backyard.

· Plan a field trip to a local park, wildlife refuge, zoo, aquarium or botanical garden in your town.

· Hold classroom discussions using Endangered Species Day lesson plans or work with the Girl Scouts to earn an Endangered Species Day badge.

· Plan or participate in an Endangered Species Day event near you!

      I took a trip to the cleveland metroparks zoo a couple days ago. All I can say is, beautiful animals like that should have their homes stolen from them because of human beings who think the world is just for them.

      We all rely on eachother, when one goes, the other falls.


      Oh yes and I worked on making a little hotel for birds in my back yard :D. It has luxurious bird baths with fresh water every 2 days and all the seeds anyone could want. :D

      "zoo, aquarium"
      that is not the way to preserve endangered species. That is the way to exploit, and take their freedom away. Think Shamu.

      To celebrate Endangered Species in anyway can only be a good thing.  It promotes public awareness of the plight of so many of our animals that are threatened by extinction.  It gets children involved in such an important issue and makes it fun for them so they are going to take an interest in it.  Our children are our future, if we teach them to respect the animals and the environment, this in itself will protect the species in the future.

      Our cat is a European Wild Cat (Felis silvestris).
      We had no idea when we met him at the age of about six weeks and had him castrated when the time came.
      Afterwards I found out that there are only around 2,000 of his kind left in this country.
      It is important to preserve as many species as possible as our environment is becoming poorer by the day and our children are much less fortunate then we used to be when it comes to seeing wildlife.
      We should start now before it's too late.
