National Wildlife Day, founded in 2005 and carried forward in the memory of animal lover and conservationist Steve Irwin, serves to bring awareness to the number of endangered animals nationally, as well as globally, that need to be preserved and rescued from their demise each year, and also to acknowledge zoos and outstanding animal sanctuaries and organizations globally for everything they do to help preserve this planet’s animals and educate the public about conservation – especially to children….our animal’s future caretakers and conservationists.
National Wildlife Day will also encourage citizens to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, visit their local zoo and donate to worthy wildlife rehabilitation sanctuaries and organizations that make a difference in the lives of our beloved wild animal friends.
Look up your local zoo or animal sanctuary, sponsor a favorite animal, donate or volunteer to help in any way you can.
The animals thank you!!
