This Endangered Species Day we are celebrating the animals that need our help and taking action to protect them to ensure a healthy planet for every species within it. 


We need a balanced ecosystem. 

Wildlife species are vital to the health of the ecosystem and our planet. Once these species go extinct, it throws off the balance within the ecosystem - the loss of one species triggers another, then another…


According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, about one-third of all known species are threatened with extinction globally. And a quarter of native mammals are now at risk of extinction in the UK as reported by the Mammal Society.These species are going extinct at an alarming rate. 

As humans, we need a healthy, sustainable ecosystem to survive. This ensures clean water and air and food and agricultural resources. Our health depends on our wildlife surviving and thriving.

8 ways to take action and protect Endangered Species. 

We all can help protect the most critically Endangered Species (even from home!)
