Endangered Species Day History
Endangered Species Day seeks to raise awareness about endangered species. The term endangered means that that species is likely to become extinct in the future if nothing is done. Endangered species are typically at risk due to habitat loss, poaching, or invasive species. This day aims to highlight the importance of conservation for endangered species. It encourages solutions and preventative measures to help sustain species at risk.
Endangered Species Day was established in 2006 by the United States Senate. It is observed annually on the third Friday of May.
