National Wildlife Day is observed annually on September 4th.
National Wildlife Day is an opportunity to learn more about endangered species, preservation and conservation efforts around the world. Zoos, aviaries, and marine sanctuaries provide a variety of ways to get involved. From participating in presentations and volunteering to fundraise for rehabilitation services, these facilities have something for everyone to learn.
