Celebrate National Wildlife Day

National Wildlife Day is an observance designed to bring awareness to the number of endangered animals nationally, as well as globally, that need to be protected. All around the world, zoos, animal sanctuaries and wildlife organizations are honored for their collective work to help preserve the planet's animals and educate the public about conservation.

Held annually on February 22, the birthday of the late wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin, National Wildlife Day encourages citizens to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, visit their local zoo, and donate to worthy wildlife rehabilitation sanctuaries and organizations that make a difference in the lives of our wild animal friends.
