Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for people young and old to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and everyday actions that people can take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife and last remaining open space.
And because our children have the most vested interest in protecting the earth and its inhabitants, the national Endangered Species Day Youth Art Contest provides young people with an opportunity to learn about endangered species and express their knowledge and support through artwork.
