ENDANGERED SPECIES DAY

Friday, May 18th: Calling all wild animals … it’s ENDANGERED SPECIES DAY. This day “is an opportunity for people young and old to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and everyday actions that people can take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife and last remaining open space. Protecting America’s wildlife and plants today is a legacy we leave to our children and grandchildren, so that all Americans can experience the rich variety of native species that help to define our nation.” See more at: http://www.stopextinction.org/esd.html . There are e-cards, art contests, 10 easy ways to help endangered species at home, and much more.

A few of the ’10 Easy ways to help endangered species at home’ are:

1)     Learn about endangered species in your area

2)      Visit a national wildlife refuge, park or other open space

3)      Make your home wildlife friendly

4)      Provide habitat for wildlife by planting native vegetation in your yard

5)      Minimize use of herbicides and pesticides ….

The ideas also list specific ways to accomplish each suggestion. This is an excellent resource of ways we can help from home, from our own backyards so to speak. Check them out here: http://www.stopextinction.org/10athome.html
