Dear xx,

On May 21, millions of Americans will be celebrating 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 16-22!

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 American pika, Gunnison sage-grouse, Canada lynx, Monarch butterflies, 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!

Sunday:

Join us on Sunday, May 16 for Tal-us About Pikas! 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 virtual hybrid Tal-us About Pikas webinar with Rocky Mountain Wild’s Senior Conservation Biologist, Megan Mueller, on Sunday, May 16, 1:00-2:30 pm MT! She will discuss pika ecology and the potential impacts of climate change on pikas. Learn how the Front Range Pika Project, a community science project in our own backyard, is significantly advancing scientific understanding of pikas, and how you can become involved. You will also learn about a new smartphone app called Pika Patrol that you can use to help us with our research by recording pika sightings throughout the Rockies. Following the Zoom presentation, participants who are in-person at Wild Bear Nature Center will have the opportunity to test out the app (Beta version), sign up to volunteer, and even adopt a plush pika to help fund the research.

Monday:

Start your work week right by doing something wild! Today we are urging all our supporters to take a few minutes to do a good deed for the wildlife, wild lands, and historic sites that share our planet. We would love for you to share that good deed on our social media channels so that we can inspire people around the world to join us!

What will your day of service look like? Will you put out hummingbird feeders? Install stickers on your windows to reduce bird collisions? Pick up garbage in your local park? Sign a petition in support of wildlife crossing structures? Volunteer for a community science project? We can’t wait to hear from you!

Tuesday:

Join us on Tuesday, May 18 as we explore Gunnison sage-grouse and work to #SaveGrouse! Gunnison sage-grouse once ranged widely across southwest Colorado and Utah but today they occupy just 10% of their historic range. With fewer than 5,000 of these birds remaining the Gunnison sage-grouse needs our help. Habitat loss from urban development, oil and gas drilling, mining, off-road vehicle use, and road construction threatens to push this species toward extinction. Learn more about Gunnison sage-grouse and see what you can do to help protect them. And attend a live webinar from 6:00-7:00 pm, presented by our friends at Defenders of Wildlife, about the National Biodiversity Strategy resolution, looking at Gunnison sage-grouse as an example of how the strategy would benefit imperiled species in Colorado.

Wednesday:

Join us on Wednesday, May 19 as we talk about the links needed for lynx! The elusive Canada lynx once ranged from Alaska to northern New Mexico, west into California, and east to Maine. By the early 1970s, Canada lynx were all but eliminated from the Rockies due to trapping, shooting, and habitat degradation. Between 1999-2007, 218 lynx were reintroduced to southwestern Colorado, but new problems like highway mortality, habitat fragmentation, ski area expansion, and lack of adequate habitat protections dwindled their numbers. Learn more about Canada lynx and see what you can do to help protect them. And attend our live webinar with connected landscape expert!

Thursday:

Join us on Thursday, May 20 as we learn about the Daughters of the Sun – Monarch butterflies! The monarch butterfly is at risk of extinction. Monarchs face numerous threats, from extreme weather due to climate change to the liberal use of pesticides, like Monsanto’s RoundUp, to habitat loss and fragmentation. The monarchs that live in the Western United States have declined by over 99%. Despite this fact, they are not protected under the Endangered Species Act. Learn more about Monarch butterflies and see what you can do to help protect them. And drop by the Museum of Boulder to view an installation by Endangered Species Coalition and artist Cal Duran to learn how you can help protect monarch butterflies!
