AUSTIN (KXAN) — Earth Day brings thoughts of recycling and saving energy. But environmentalists also want you to think about what you can do to save the rising number of wildlife threatened by climate change.
The Austin branch of the Global Wildlife Conservation works to protect endangered animals across the globe. The Austinites working to conserve the world’s wildlife will announce their new initiative, which hopes to protect rhinos from poachers.
Conservation leaders will gather at the Austin Music Hall for an Earth Day Gala.
The President of the Global Wildlife Conservtion, Don Church, joined us in the KXAN studio to preview the event.
KXAN’s David Yeomans spoke to U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, Thursday. Watch the full conversation here:
