We all want to support wildlife conservation. Seeing animals come off the endangered species list is probably one of the most rewarding feelings that you can have when you were involved. However, not all of us can work in conservation sanctuaries, helping restore animals’ habitats. There are some things that you can do in your everyday life that can help you support wildlife conservation.
I know as well as you do that money, whether you love it or you hate it, is necessary to progress. There are multiple non-profit foundations that specialize in conserving wildlife. The key is to DO YOUR RESEARCH! Know where your finances are going and support, support, support.
Try to Eat Sustainable Seafood
If you love to eat fish, you don’t have to stop just because you want to support wildlife conservation. However, you have to keep in mind that there can be over-fishing and seafood farming when it comes to the specific type of seafood you buy. This can lead to the overall depletion of our ocean’s resources. Do your research when it comes to what will be on your plate, just so that you can find out the right choice to pick at the fish counter.
Garden, If You Can
We all know that bumblebees are currently on the endangered species list. Specifically, the rust-colored bumblebee has declined by almost 0% over the past two decades. Pollinators like the bumblebees are becoming more at risk of becoming extinct because of the overuse of pesticides and herbicides. To help your local bumblebees, you can include bee-friendly plants in your gardens like salvia, beebalm, and borage.
We all want to help out our local ecosystem, but singlehandedly taking on an entire project to save an endangered species can be almost impossible to accomplish. Doing our part every day can help immensely.
