Endangered Species Day


On Friday, May 15, 2015 join us in recognizing Endangered Species Day, a day to learn about the imperiled birds, fish and plants in your area and to share the importance of wildlife conservation with your community.

Help us raise awareness about these stories and more!

5 Ways to Celebrate Endangered Species Day:

  1. TAKE ACTION - Help keep red wolves from going extinct by editing and sending a message to your members of Congress, urging them to increase funding for red wolf conservation.

  2. Update your Facebook Timeline pic - Show your support for endangered species with a photo of your favorite wildlife species. Let us know you did it by including @National Wildlife Federation in your status message.

  3. Help spread the word via Twitter - Share an Endangered Species Day story or wildlife message with your friends and family. Make sure to include #speciesday in your tweet.

  4. Attend an Endangered Species Day event! Events are held across the country to highlight endangered species stories.

  5. Help Kids Learn About Biodiversity! NWF's Eco-Schools has resources to get students ready to celebrate biodiversity and conservation.
