Celebrate Endangered Species Day!

This petition had 233 supporters

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!
