2009 Endangered Species DayMay 15, 2009
“Happy” Endangered Species Day? Well, there isn’t a lot that’s happy about disappearing biodiversity, but in 2006, the U.S. Congress created Endangered Species Day to celebrate wildlife – and we should certainly celebrate increased awareness about endangered species. Endangered Species Day falls on the third Friday of every May.
So, today would be a good day to get involved with the World Parrot Trust’s work to save endangered parrots around the world. Click the banner below to see what you can do to make a difference.
p.s. Since a lot of captive parrot species are actually endangered in the wild, let’s also remind our legislators that banning the breeding and transfer of non-native animals is a pretty dumb idea too.
