Have you hugged an endangered species today?

How much do you know about endangered species and the Endangered Species Act that protects them?

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the agency primarily responsible for protecting native species in this country. What with invasive species, habitat loss due to development, and changing climate patterns, to mention just three challenges, they've certainly got their hands full. And that doesn't even begin to take into account the ignorance and apathy of the public.

Still, they have had some notable successes and today they are celebrating. Yes, today is Endangered Species Day.

So, how much do you know about endangered species? The USFWS has a quiz to help you find out. Click on this quiz link to answer the questions and find out just how knowledgable you are.
