Via Facebook of all places (I’m friends with Ranger Rick!) comes this National Geographic Green Guide item on Earth Day:

While global warming and human expansion have us focused on dropping the carbon pounds—switching light bulbs, reducing gas mileage and buying carbon offsets—vast numbers of species continue to lose their native habitats and food supplies. Globally, 23 percent of mammals, 12 percent of birds and 32 percent of amphibians, alongside nearly 8,400 plant species, are on the World Conservation Union’s 2006 Red List of species threatened with extinction.

Head on over and see what you can do this Earth Day to help protect dying species.
