National World Wildlife Conservation Day

I went to see if today was a special day for an animal to give me an idea of which one I should post from my list.  I’d already done cheetah, but I saw National World Wildlife Conservation Day at the bottom of the list.  That gave me an idea.

I always mention why species are in danger and that inevitably gets people commenting on how humans are monsters.  While this can be true, you also have humans who are fighting to keep species alive.  We are a species of individuals, which means we should honor the good while condemning the bad.  So, I went looking for examples of conservation success stories.  Some of these animals are in the clear while others are moving away from the brink thanks to heavy conservation efforts made by groups, individuals, and local governments.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
