Today, May 18, is Endangered Species Day, a chance to pay some much-needed attention to the animals we are driving out. The US Senate started this day so we can rally around the idea of protection and stewardship for the planet and its inhabitants. Thousands of people participate at local zoos, wildlife refuges, aquariums, botanical gardens, libraries, community centers, and parks. Hopefully school classrooms are participating as well–there can never be enough reminders that we are not alone, nor are we the most important beings here…certainly not at the expense of others.
How will you get involved today? And tomorrow? And beyond?
