Colleen Paige, author and founder of the Animal Miracle Foundation & Network, created National Wildlife day. She did this in memory of the late Steve Irwin who appreciated and was passionate about all aspects of wildlife. National Wildlife Day is about two important things: raising awareness for endangered animals and appreciating U.S. zoos, sanctuaries, farms, etc. for helping to
preserve our wildlife. As you go on with your day today, take note of the different animals that you see.  Even if they are domesticated, take a minute to think about where they came from and what they would be like in the wild.

Get outside with friends or family and appreciate the wildlife around you today!
