There are many ways that you can celebrate National Wildlife Day! Partner with a local animal sanctuary to host a fun and educational event, help to promote an event at your local zoo or library by handing out flyers and posting info on your website if you have one, partner with us to host an event at a local zoo or sanctuary, help support our work by promoting our social media pages to your friends, draw or paint your favorite wild animal and share it with us for a chance to be featured on one of our tees, and suggest to your local zoo, school, library, nonprofit organization or animal sanctuary about hosting a National Wildlife Day event.

National Wildlife Day (Feb. 22nd & September 4th) founded in 2005 by animal behaviorist and philanthropist Colleen Paige, serves to bring awareness of endangered animals nationally as well as globally, that need to be preserved and rescued from their demise each year, but also to acknowledge zoos and outstanding animal sanctuaries globally for everything they do to help preserve this planet’s animals and educate the public about conservation – especially to children….our animal’s future caretakers and conservationists.

National Wildlife Day will be 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, to visit their local zoo and donate what they can to make a difference in the lives of our beloved animal friends.

This day, formerly celebrated and observed on September 4th, has added the date of February 22nd, to honor the memory and birthday of Wildlife Warrior, Steve Irwin.
