Today, February 22nd is National Wildlife Day! Also celebrated on September 4th, the 22nd was added to honor the memory and birthday of wildlife conservationist, Steve Irwin.
National Wildlife Day was created to bring awareness of endangered animals that need to be preserved and rescued from their diminishing populations. This day is also used to acknowledge zoos and animal sanctuaries for everything they do to help preserve this planet’s animals and educate the public about conservation. National Wildlife Day is celebrated on two dates, to double the effort to help bring awareness of the plight of wild animals around the globe. NWD encourages wildlife lovers to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, visit their local zoo, and donate what they can to make a difference in the lives of endangered animals.
National Band & Tag is excited to celebrate today by recognizing all our conservation, zoo, and sanctuary customers! The research and conservation efforts that our customers make is inspiring, and we are happy to know that they use our products to help make a difference. We have had the opportunity to meet a lot of these great people the past two years at The Wildlife Society Conference, and we are excited to get to work with more conservationists in the future to meet all their identification needs.
