Damaging anti-environmentalist Sarah Palin advocates shooting wolves from helicopters (and is getting a show with The Discovery Channel?!? WTF?)…rainforests are being cut down more rapidly than seeds could ever be planted…and the BP Gulf oil leak continues to belch crude into our waters, killing countless fish and pretty much guaranteeing an entire generation of sea turtles, who are in the midst of an immovable mating season, will not be able to get to shore to lay eggs and will not survive…

So…ummm…Happy Endangered Species Day

In the U.S. alone, there are 1,324 species listed as endangered. To find out which species in your region are in critical condition, check out the website for the Fish and Wildlife Endangered Species Program. Today, many of the Service’s field and regional offices will be hosting events in their communities and providing unique programs to visitors on endangered species conservation. For more information on how you can find an event near you, please visit www.fws.gov/endangered/ESDay/2010.html
