We all know that more and more animals are becoming endangered every day, but most of us aren’t doing anything to help.  National Wildlife Day is trying to bring awareness to this serious situation.   Zoos and animal sanctuaries need help to keep the animals safe and happy, but that’s not all – there are so many animals out in the wild that are being hurt or killed because of our progress and brutal farming.  We need to give the animals a voice and help them fight for their lives.  Today is a great day to visit your local zoo, adopt a pet, and donate to your local animal shelter or an online wildlife rescue center to help in any way you can.   If we all help, we can make a difference!

If you want to donate, or learn more, here are some great places to start:

Greenpeace is especially adept at making videos that encourage/horrify viewers into helping.  Their approach might seem brutal to some, but it’s effective:
