What You Can Do
Remember that your backyard is part of planet Earth - it's the place to start!
- Practice your writing skills and contact your local, state, or federal representatives to ask for support in protecting our disappearing wildlife and the places they call home.
- Become an informed consumer! Many plants, animals, and habitats are affected by our demands for endangered species products, such as ivory and skins.
- Share your knowledge and concern with friends, family, and associates. Reach out and join local conservation groups or start a neighborhood club that sponsors environmental issues.
- Slow down the exploitation of habitats and natural resources: reduce-recycle-reuse-rebuild-replant!
