National Wildlife Day is celebrated on two dates, September 4th and February 22nd, to double the effort to help bring awareness of the plight of wild animals around the globe. This day is recognized in an effort to encourage wildlife lovers to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, to visit their local zoos, and donate what they can to make a difference in the lives of our beloved animal friends.Here are 5 ways you can celebrate National Wildlife Day:
  1. Educate yourself! Commit to continuing to learn about wildlife and wildlife preservation, because knowledge is power.
  2. Watch Animal Planet. Learn more about wildlife and endangered species through fun and engaging television programs. You’ll be surprised how many new things you can learn.
  3. Donate to a wildlife organization. Any donation no matter how small makes a difference for wildlife preservation. Find an organization you believe in, maybe like the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and show them your support.
  4. Have conversations. Talk with your friends and family about the welfare of our planet’s wildlife, and how important it is for each of us to do our part to protect and preserve.
  5. Visit your local zoo or aquarium. Plan an outing to your city’s local zoo or aquarium, or send tickets to a family member to help support these organizations, and spark greater interest in wildlife.
