AnimalSilo Dedicates World Animal Day To All Critically Endangered Species

World Animal Day – October 4th 2015

TODAY, thousands of people all over the world will unite to raise awareness of animal suffering. AnimalSilo has decided to share with all of you photos of amazing creatures who are endangered  mainly because of human intervention in their habitat. Let’s dedicate some time in contemplating about our responsibilities to these loveliest of creatures. If we do nothing, many of them will end up in the macabre list with the animals that are already extinct. World Animal Day is here to remind us that we cannot survive without all these animals, with whom we share our planet.
