Editor for the Day: Wednesday_Elf: Endangered Wild Animals

Posted: 21 Jun 2013 10:09 AM PDT

wednesdayelfToday’s Giant Squid Editor for the Day has chosen to turn the spotlight on lenses about endangered wild animals.

Here’s what lensmaster Wednesday_Elf had to say about it followed by their top 10 picks.

These lenses showcase animals that are endangered and point out conservation methods working toward saving them from extinction. There are also suggestions for what we as individuals can do to protect our wildlife.

Some of the lenses are about one particular animal. Others are about several or all endangered animals. One lens is about a bird sanctuary. Sanctuaries, marine and animal reserves, and awareness of the plight of our wildlife are all needed to save them.

In my opinion, it’s all about the ‘Balance of Nature’. ~ Wednesday_Elf
