Endangered Species Day
May 17, 2019
This year, International Endangered Species Day is May 17th. Creation Justice Ministries has developed a bulletin insert and toolkit to help your faith community celebrate.
First approved by the U.S. Senate in 2006, the purpose of Endangered Species Day is to expand awareness of the importance of protecting endangered species, to promote habitat conservation, to share success stories of species recovery, and to highlight the everyday actions people can take.
On May 17 (and throughout the month of May), faith communities, conservation organizations, schools, zoos and aquariums, parks, wildlife refuges, botanic gardens, and other groups throughout the country will participate in events and activities to celebrate this national day of recognition.
