Dear xx,

On May 15, millions of Americans will be celebrating the 15th annual Endangered Species Day! Endangered Species Day is a day set aside to learn about and work towards the protection of all the plant and animal species in our nation that are at risk. This year, we’re celebrating with our friends at Rocky Mountain Wild as they host Colorado Endangered Species Week, May 10-16!

For each day of Colorado Endangered Species Week there are exciting activities, including things to read, direct actions to take, and things to watch to help us learn about and advocate for our Colorado imperiled, threatened, and endangered species. And we’d like to invite you to participate!

[Feel free to include the details of the particular event you are partnering with, or use the general description if you want to advertise the whole week of events.]

General:

The week will include activities to celebrate, learn about, and protect species like bighorn sheep, gray wolves, bats, American pika, and more! Activities include articles to read, petitions to sign, movies to watch, and even live Zoom events with species experts! We’ve also got a great suite of activities for kids.

Consider joining us for your favorite day or all seven! And don’t miss out on the Endangered Species Day Parade on May 15, where we will see creators’ art, poems or stories, zines, outfits, make-up, and more, celebrating their favorite species. People of all ages are welcome and encouraged to share their creations in the Parade!

Sunday:

Join us on May 10 as we Join the Herd with our official state animal: bighorn sheep. Learn about the impacts of disease on the species, sign a petition to improve protections, and learn about the Go Big! Central Colorado Bighorn Sheep Survey – a citizen science project needed to fill gaps in our knowledge about bighorn sheep habitat and migration corridors to inform efforts to prevent disease outbreaks!  

Plus, we’ve got learning and art projects for kids, too!

Monday:

Join us on May 11 as we Join the Pack and learn about gray wolves! Gray wolves used to roam across Colorado, but by 1940, the species had been extirpated (a term meaning it no longer exists in the wild in its historical habitat, but still exists other places). A few individual gray wolves (and one current pack) have found their way back, but not enough to create a stable, biologically diverse population. This November, Colorado voters will vote on Initiative 107 to reintroduce wolves to Colorado. Join us to learn more about gray wolves, the reintroduction ballot measure, and more! We’ve got fun activities and art projects for kids, too, including Captain Planet Foundation’s Rocky Mountain Wolf Quest!

Plus, be sure to register for the Wolf Power Hour and Ask Me Anything at noon. Caitlin and John from Defenders of Wildlife and Samantha from WildEarth Guardians will talk about wolves, their importance to the ecosystem, and wolf reintroduction. Then, our experts will answer your wolf questions!

Tuesday:

Join us on May 12 as we explore Wild Wolf Creek Pass! Wolf Creek Pass is the most important wildlife linkage in the San Juan Mountains, but for decades, it’s been threatened with the construction of a ski resort “village” for 10,000 people. The area provides a vital wildlife movement corridor for Canada lynx, bear, elk, and other species. Join us to learn more about the importance of wildlife corridors and especially the one at Wolf Creek Pass. We’ve got fun activities and art projects for kids, too!

Plus, be sure to register for the Wild Wolf Creek Pass Power Hour and Ask Me Anything at noon. Mark Pearson from San Juan Citizens Alliance will talk about the ecological importance of this natural wildlife corridor and Matt Sandler from Rocky Mountain Wild will talk about the status of the current litigation to keep Wolf Creek Pass wild! Then, we’ll open it up for your questions.

Wednesday:

Join us on May 13 for Tal-us About Pika! The American pika has adapted to an extremely narrow set of living conditions, allowing them to thrive in environments that are harshly cold for most of the year—but these adaptations also make the American pika vulnerable to a warming climate. Join us to learn more about American pikas and how you can help. We’ve got fun activities and art projects for kids, too!

Plus, be sure to register for the Pika Power Hour and Ask Me Anything at noon. Jo Varner from Colorado Mesa University and Megan Mueller from Rocky Mountain Wild will discuss the species, its current status, and the citizen science projects that will help us protect this adorable animal. Plus, they’ll answer all your burning pika-related questions!

Thursday:

Join us on May 14 for Hanging Out With Bats! There are 18 bat species that call Colorado home, but we don’t know very much about them. We will learn a little bit more about them, the threats they face, and what we can do to help! We’ve got fun activities and art projects for kids, too!

Plus, be sure to register for the Bat Power Hour and Ask Me Anything at noon. Rocky Mountain Wild’s citizen science team will be joined by bat conservationist and environmental educator Kristen Lear to discuss what we do know about Colorado bats, what we don’t know, and how the Colorado Bat Watch citizen science project can fill in the gaps. Then, we’ll open it up to answer all your bat questions!

Friday:

Join us for a live Endangered Species Day Parade on Zoom at noon! Whether you have finished coloring pages to share, original drawings or other art, poems or stories, zines, outfits, make-up, or any other creative endeavor, we want to see your creations honoring your favorite at risk Colorado species! If you would like your artwork to be featured but can’t attend, send it along to Chris along with your name and anything you want people to know about your creation.

Saturday:

Join us for Colorado Public Lands Day as we celebrate our public lands! For Colorado Endangered Species Week, we’re celebrating Colorado Public Lands Day by talking about the importance of inclusion and equity in our public lands. Public lands technically belong to and benefit all of us, but certain populations have never felt welcome in our public lands. Others have never seen themselves represented and instead have seen themselves actively erased from the history of public lands. Join us as we discover things you can do to protect public lands and help make them a more inclusive place for everyone!
