Connecting People With Nature: Ensuring the Future of Conservation

Endangered Species Day - May 19, 2017

Each spring, Endangered Species Day provides opportunities to celebrate our heritage of fish, wildlife, and plants and the ecosystems on which they depend.
For the fifth year, the Fish and Wildlife Service will observe Endangered Species Day by recognizing the importance of endangered and threatened species and focusing attention on what we can do to save them.

The Endangered Species Act expresses the nation's commitment to preventing extinctions and ensuring biodiversity. Partners in the annual Endangered Species Day observance include the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Garden Clubs of America, Girl Scouts of the United States, National Association of Biology Teachers, National Science Teachers Association, National Wildlife Federation, and Endangered Species Coalition.
