In 2017, the Sacramento Fish and Wildlife Office encouraged people to promote their conservation efforts in celebration of Earth Day by using #WeConserve in their social media posts. We were impressed by the response from students, public and private businesses, conservation organizations, hunters, and so many more. SFWO works closely with partners throughout Northern California and beyond to protect imperiled species and we’ve always known that we can’t do it alone.

Whether the focus is endangered species, water, plastic, energy, or trees—your conservation efforts make a difference that all Americans and the species and habitats we care about benefit from. So, join us again this year April 16 through April 22 as we highlight our important conservation work through posting #WeConserve photos on Twitter and other social media platforms. Tag us (@USFWSSac) when you post your #WeConserve photo and we’ll add it to the 2018 Twitter Moment.
