March 3 is World Wildlife Day, a global celebration of the amazing and diverse wildlife on our planet. Check out or quick list of things you can do RIGHT NOW to help animals.
1. Stop the Superhighway!
Nigeria's Cross River State is planning a superhighway that would destroy rainforest habitat for some of the most endangered species on Earth, including forest elephants and Cross River gorillas. The Ekuri people—who have managed land there for thousands of years—are standing up to protect their ancestral forest and the wildlife that lives there. Lend your voice in support.
2. Protect the Hudson Canyon!
Just 100 miles from Manhattan, the Hudson Canyon is a national treasure—an underwater version of the Grand Canyon that's also critical habitat for whales, sea turtles, and hundreds of other species. It should be a National Marine Sanctuary. NOAA has signaled that this magnificent seascape will be considered for protection—but they need to hear from you today!
3. Use the tiger stamp!
