Created by Congress in 2006, Endangered Species Day is a celebration of wildlife and wild places.
This year, Endangered Species Day is May 16th and a month-long display of juvenile books has been set up on top of the TAPS shelving to promote awareness.
Books on display include:
“Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” said the Sloth (PZ7.C21476Sl 2002)
If you want to see a Whale (PZ7.F6763If 2013)
Can we Save the Tiger? (QL83.J473 2011)
The Manatee Scientists: Saving Vulnerable Species (QL737.S63L68 2011)
So, celebrate – read about endangered, threatened, and vulnerable wildlife from across the world and learn how small, everyday actions at home can help save these animals from threats such as climate change, deforestation, illegal trade, and pollution. Celebrate Endangered Species Day at the library; celebrate Endangered Species Day with a book.
