Have you hugged an endangered species today?

I’ve never met a green diva or dude who didn’t love animals. And most have an extra special place in their heart for endangered species.

Every year in May, the US celebrates Endangered Species Day. It’s a day to learn about plants and animals that are at risk and to participate in local conservation efforts. And it’s a day to recognize and support national efforts to protect our endangered species and their habitats.

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 has prevented the extinction of 99 percent of the species it protects. Today, the Endangered Species Act protects over 2,140 listed species.
