Liz –
Happy Saturday! Although time is rather meaningless in today's climate, we should take time to celebrate the joys of life – like the 15th anniversary of Endangered Species Day this weekend.
Endangered species day, which was created by the Endangered Species Coalition and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, helps bring awareness to national conservation efforts to protect our endangered species and their habitats.
Since the Endangered Species Act was signed into law, 99% of the species protected have been brought back from the brink of extinction. It has done that by protecting the habitats of these species, by banning poachers from killing for ivory, shark fin, coral, and tortoise-shell, and by ensuring our policies are written based on science.
In the middle of a global health pandemic – and an administration that'll do anything to make a dollar off our planet – we must do everything needed to protect our lands, our oceans, and biodiversity – the most critical aspect for the survival of endangered species everywhere. If we do not, we humans are well on track to drive up to one million species into extinction.
Here's what you can do right now to help:
  • Decorate your home windows to stop bird collisions. Millions of birds die every year from collision into windows. Get creative and decorate your windows – and save our birds!
  • Make your home wildlife friendly by securing your garbage cans, hang birdbaths and bird feeders in your yard (unless you have bears as we do in New England this time of year), and reducing water waste.
  • Write a letter or call your local member of Congress asking them to protect the Endangered Species Act. This alone helps save millions of animals, thousands of parks, and wildlife refuge.
  • Stop using synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides that are hazardous pollutants directly affecting wildlife and their habitats.
  • Share your thoughts (and your favorite endangered specie!) by responding to this email as well as with your friends on social media with the tag #StopExtinction.
Stay safe, Liz. And thank you for fighting for our planet.
P.S. My favorite endangered specie is the North Atlantic Right Whale.
