Join us March 12-16 in our annual celebration of National Wildlife Week!
The rich history of National Wildlife Week dates all the way back to its first celebration in 1938. As our longest-running education program, National Wildlife Week connects budding conservationists of all ages to the awesome wonders of wildlife. Now more than ever, these connections serve as a vital component to recovering our nation’s most vulnerable wildlife.
For people across the nation, this week is a chance to learn more about the incredible animals native to North America, their habitats, and how we can help them thrive. This year we’re highlighting some of those species as we hit the road to the Final Fur and providing educational resources for students to take action in order to save our treasured species.
Today’s students will play a vital role in saving wildlife for future generations. These resources, assembled by the National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA program, provide ways for students to connect with wildlife in their backyard, schoolyard, and beyond. Here are 10 ways to take action:
