Endangered Species Day

On the third Friday in May, join us in recognizing Endangered Species Day.

The National Wildlife Federation spearheaded the establishment of Endangered Species Day by Congress, and we take this opportunity each year to share the importance of wildlife conservation and restoration efforts for all imperiled species. It is also a perfect time to learn about and celebrate the progress made to protect wildlife since the creation of the Endangered Species Act in 1973.
