How to Save the Animals:

Step 1: Do research at local nature organizations or zoos to find information on endangered animals. There are more than 700 animal species on the endangered list, including the giant panda, the blue whale, and the bald eagle.

Step 2: Choose one endangered animal that you especially care about. Learn as much as you can about that animal. Find out where it lives, why it is endangered, and what people are doing to help (or maybe to harm) it. Most important, find out what you can do to help.

Step 3: Make a poster telling others about the animal and how they can help. Try to hang your poster in a public place -- such as a library or store -- where lots of people will see it. Make sure to get permission before you display your poster.

One threat to endangered animals are oil spills. Continue to the next page to learn how oil spills are hazardous to animals and their environment.
