These Stunning Endangered Species Need Your Help On World Wildlife Day

Saturday, March 3 is World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants.  This year’s theme is centered on big cats. The reason? Lion, tiger, leopard and jaguar populations have been declining the last forty years due to loss of habitat and prey, conflicts with humans, and poaching.

Conserving earth’s wildlife, even famous predators like big cats, is essential to the future of humankind and the Earth. Can you imagine a world without these beautiful creatures? Their survival and the survival of their ecosystems depends on us coming together to protect them from the effects of climate change, illegal trade, and illegal hunting.

Celebrate World Wildlife Day and check out the stunning animals who need your help.
