NATIONAL WILDLIFE DAY

national-wildlife-day-september-4

Today is National Wildlife Day.  Take a trip down to your local zoo and celebrate!  Wild animals are fascinating and amazing creatures that we can appreciate and learn from.  National Wildlife Day is about two important things: raising awareness for endangered animals and appreciating U.S. zoos, sanctuaries, farms, etc. for helping to preserve our wildlife.

CELEBRATE

As you go on with your day today, take note of the different animals that you see.  Even if they are domesticated, take a minute to think about where they came from and what they would be like in the wild.  Understand that each species on our planet serves a purpose and should be cared for and protected just as we would our own pets!

HISTORY

Colleen Paige, author and founder of the Animal Miracle Foundation & Network, created National Wildlife day.  She did so not only for the purposes listed above, but to honor the late Steve Irwin (Crocodile Hunter).  She wanted to keep up the legacy of having a passion and appreciation for the many wild, and some unfamiliar, creatures that we share this planet with.

    This post inspired me to look up and bookmark some of Arizona’s zoos, which then led my family to visit one on Saturday.
