On May 10, 2010 Congress unanimously voted to make today Endangered Species Day. Headed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Endangered Species Day is supposed to be a day for people to think about the dwindling populations of some of our most beloved animals. Events are being set up at zoos, aquariums, and botanical gardens around the country to show off and discuss endangered species. While this is the fifth year that Endangered Species Day has been celebrated, this year is the first which has been recognized by the US government.
