About National Endangered Species Day 2021
National Endangered Species Day falls on May 21 this year. Annually celebrated on the third Friday of May, this is a global event that is aimed at the protection of the endangered species of our planet. 2021 marks the 16th National Endangered Species Day.
Established by the US Senate, the historic National Endangered Species Day came into being in 2006. On December 28, the Endangered Species Act of 1973 was officially signed into law to facilitate the monumental effort of prevention of endangered species extinction. It has been reported that there are around 16000 species (including algae, fungi) whose existence is at a critical juncture.
In India, according to the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, hunting of wild animals has been banned to eradicate the risk of endangered species extinction.
