It’s National Endangered Species Day!
National Endangered Species Day is a day to remind us of the significance of protecting endangered species and the wild habitat they require. For Atka, everyday is Endangered Species Day! He helps people young and old grasp the importance of safeguarding the future of wolves in North America for generations to come. While Atka’s future will never be at risk, some of his wild brothers and sisters have a less certain outlook. We all have the responsibility to affect the world and today is a perfect day to use your voice in order to speak up for species in need. There are many resources online to help people act on behalf of endangered wolves.
Please visit the following websites to act on behalf of:
- The last 50 Mexican gray wolves in the wild – www.mexicanwolves.org
- The last 23 or less gray wolves in Oregon – www.oregonwild.org
- The gray wolves of north-central Idaho targeted by aerial gunning – www.defenders.org
