Endangered Species Day – May 19, 2017

   

On May 19, 2017 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will observe Endangered Species Day in order to recognize
the national conservation efforts to protect our nation's endangered species and their habitats.


Join the effort to help us celebrate Endangered Species Day by participating in the endangered species youth art contest. Children in grades K through 12 can learn about threatened and endangered wildlife while expressing their knowledge and support for conservation efforts through their artistic and creative talents. The deadline for the art contest is March 1, 2017.
