It’s Endangered Species Day, and you know what that means: It’s Take Your Tiger to Work day.
The Six-Year-Old, on finding Tigery already stationed at her desk: “What are we going to do today, Tigery?”
Tigery, in a voice that sounds suspiciously like Daddyo’s: “The same thing we do every day, The Six-Year-Old: Try to take over the world!”
What’s Endangered Species Day?
Endangered Species Day, observed on the third Friday in May, is an opportunity for all Americans to learn more about country’s endangered species and about simple everyday actions we can take to protect them. Thousands of Americans celebrate the day by visiting their local zoos, wildlife refuges, parks, aquariums, botanical gardens, or by attending one of the many festivals set up to mark the day (and educate the public).
