That's right: it's Endangered Species Day, a national celebration to spread awareness about all our planet's wildlife, fish, and plants -- including the beloved polar bear -- that are threatened with extinction. It's also a great day to take action to help save them.
One of the most important actions of all? Spreading the word. Species need help every day, from everybody, so use this holiday as a jump-start for a year of conservation actions to be carried out by you, your friends and family, and your community. To start, all you have to do is wish someone a happy Endangered Species Day with one of these attractive and witty postcards, humbly brought to you by the Center for Biological Diversity.
Oh, and they do have a present for you after all -- if you haven't already, you can download free endangered species cell phone ringtones from our Web site here. Choose from the sounds of lots of cool owls, frogs, whales, wolves, and other species.
Thanks for caring about our planet's imperiled inhabitants, and a Happy Endangered Species Day to you.
