National Wildlife Day

National Wildlife Day is September 4 (2019) and aims to bring into focus information about endangered species, preservation and conservation efforts around the world. Zoos, aviaries, and marine sanctuaries provide a variety of ways to get involved. From the sky to the depths of the ocean, wildlife is all around us.   Whether you visit your local animal sanctuary or volunteer for a conservation program, it's easy to become a part of this great initiative. 

Around the world, facilities and organization will present seminars and educational programs. Podcasts and documentaries will alert us to the changing conditions for various species.  Some may be as close as your own back yard. 

You can help to observe #NationalWildlife Day in a presentation or volunteer to fund-raise for rehabilitation services. Learn about the needs of endangered species and how conservation efforts work. Implement your own preservation techniques as suggested by preservationists. Visit the National Wildlife Federation to learn more.
