Endangered Animals Need Our Help

Your DGB for today is to participate in Endangered Species Day.

Endangered Species Day was started in 2006 by the United States Congress and works to educate people of all ages about the importance of protecting endangered species. Animals like the Bowhead Whale, the Mexican Gray Wolf, and the Florida Panther need our help.

The Endangered Species Coalition Website has provided a ton of educational and fun ideas to participate in Endangered Species Day. You can send an e-card (our favorite is the black-footed ferret card.  Reminds us of another weasel, only better looking.) You can donate to help save endangered species. You can follow the link provided to add your name to a variety of petition letters to members of government. Lastly, you can peruse the youth art submissions depicting endangered species (wow, we were so impressed with the talent of these young artists!)

There are so many great ideas on the website for how you can help protect endangered animals, so we encourage you to take a minute to check out the site and offer your support in the way that works best for you. Please help protect those that can’t protect themselves.
