National Endangered Species Day
With a heavy heart, I’d like to bring your awareness to National Endangered Species Day. An endangered species is “an animal or plant that is seriously at risk of extinction,” according to Google. Can you imagine? An entire species completely wiped of its existence on Earth. Animals tend to become extinct due to the threat of predators, or, more commonly, a distinct change in its environment that the animal cannot adapt to.
Worldwildlife.org states that there are different categories of endangered species:
More than 26,500 species are endangered.
Here are some species that you may not have known are endangered:
By researching and making yourself aware of the truth, you can start to take small steps in your everyday lives to prevent the extinction of these beautiful species.
If only we could protect these animals the way we protect our possessions with insurance. If only there was a way to insure the loss of an entire species.
