Design Your Own Endangered Species Mask
This year marks the 15th Annual Endangered Species day, to mark this special event we are calling on all young aspiring artists to get creative and design your very own special mask of your favourite endangered animal and learn some fun facts along the way.
Facts about Endangered Species Day
Endangered Species Day is a day for people of all ages to recognise efforts to protect endangered species and their habitats worldwide.
Rhinos are under threat from poaching and habitat loss. Three of the five species - the black rhino, sumatran and javan rhinos are 'critically endangered'. Without action to save them, they could soon go extinct. That’s why we’re working with Save The Rhino to make sure all five species of rhinos can thrive in the wild for future generations.
Conserving rhinos doesn’t just benefit the five rhino species on our planet. Rhinos are ‘umbrella species’ – by protecting them, you protect lots of other plants and animals that share their home ranges, including other endangered species like elephants, pangolins and tigers.
Rangers are on the frontlines of conservation to protect some of the world’s most endangered species. Save the Rhino ensure that ranger teams have the kit they need to do their job.
