Today is World Animal Day. It began in 1931 to draw attention to our endangered species. According to the World Wildlife Fund there are currently 16 animals on the CRITICALLY ENDANGERED (extreme high risk of extinction in the near future) list and 36 more that are ENDANGERED.
Where do some of your favorite animals fall on the list?
How can we help protect the habitats and conservation of our endangered friends?
Green Pieces Puzzles bring awareness to endangered animals and the reasons why (deforestation of the Panda’s habitat). Endangered Species Organic Chocolates donates 10% of net profits to organizations that support species conservation, habitat preservation and humanitarian efforts.
Even though they aren’t on any threatened lists (thank goodness!), we couldn’t skip these favorites on World Animal Day!
Now let’s see pictures of your favorite animal friends!
