Every May, thousands of people celebrate
Endangered Species Day by visiting parks, wildlife refuges and zoos and attending events in support of nationwide conservation efforts underway protecting America’s threatened, endangered and at-risk species.
The Endangered Species list, co-administered by the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has prevented hundreds of listed species from becoming extinct.
Started by a United States Senate proclamation, Endangered Species Day encourages people of all ages to learn about the importance of protecting endangered plants and animals and what actions can be taken to help preserve the future of these species. Visit Hogle Zoo for special presentations about our endangered species and learn what you can do to help protect them!
