Founded by David Robinson (former ES Day Director) and the Endangered Species Coalition in 2006, Endangered Species Day is an annual event for people around the world to learn about, celebrate, and take action for endangered species. 2023 also marks the 50th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), a landmark piece of legislation that institutionalized our national commitment to the conservation of fish, plants and wildlife. Join us in celebrating Endangered Species Day and the 50th Anniversary of the ESA on Friday, May 19th and throughout May!
