Endangered Species Day is celebrated on May 17 every year to bring awareness to threats facing endangered species across our blue planet.
The Endangered Species Act has supported work that has prevented the extinction of 99 percent of the species it has protected. That work is now under threat.
On Endangered Species Day, learn about some endangered species we have here at the National Aquarium.
Did you know that the endangered pallid sturgeon is one of the oldest fish in North America?
