Protect Our Wildlife

Protecting wildlife can be as simple as picking up litter when we see it and disposing of it properly to joining the movement to ban plastic bags. The level of involvement is a personal choice, but one that every human needs to make to insure the safety and well-being of wild animals. Winning entries will display how people can choose to protect wildlife.
