There is nothing more exciting than stumbling upon a wild creature, whether it is a songbird on your fence, or a rabbit scurrying across your path, these chance meetings remind us that we share our planet with many creatures great and small. And we must do our part to protect them.
Wildlife is an important part of our world—and we’ve become a central part of theirs, as well. The pollution we’re pumping into the air isn’t just changing our climate and forcing us to adapt to extreme weather—it’s doing the same to them.
Which is why this National Wildlife Day, we’ve chosen to highlight 5 American species struggling to survive in a changing world.
From the adorable sea otter to the ravenous wolverine, unexpected creatures are scrambling to adapt to new extreme weather and unstable habitats.
Help raise awareness of wildlife at risk! Check out our National Wildlife Day slideshow, and share your favorite photos with your friends:
With your help, we can protect these captivating critters from uncapped carbon pollution.
Thank you for all you do,
Action Network Coordinator
