Endangered Species Day Celebration
Celebrate Endangered Species Day with FCMoD! Did you know? The museum is home to the most endangered mammal in North America: the black-footed ferret! Tune in to learn about the history of conservation surrounding this fascinating animal, from its rediscovery in 1981 to today’s captive breeding and reintroduction program and new efforts in cloning. Meet the scientists – and the black-footed ferrets themselves! – bringing this endangered species back from the brink of extinction!
Presented in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
