May 17 is Endangered Species Day. But we live among threatened and endangered plant and animal species every day. You might see them during a bird walk on the lakefront or on a hike through the Cook County forest preserves. You will see them swimming in Shedd’s exhibits and even growing in our gardens.

Earth’s water systems, like the oceans and Great Lakes, give us life. In 2013, consider giving something back by choosing sustainable seafood – fish that are abundant, well managed, and caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways. This is one of the easiest and most delicious actions we can take to protect the health of our waters worldwide. Shedd Aquarium makes it easy to choose sustainable seafood with our Right Bite program.

Years begin and end, but some things stay constant in life, like the presence of our Great Lakes and oceans, gifting us with immeasurable riches: the seafood we eat, the air we breathe, and the special wild places that call to us. Your favorite waterside spot might be the corner of a busy urban pier or the endless stretch of windswept dunes along Lake Michigan, and together we can choose sustainable actions that celebrate and protect those places. Now is an ideal time to think about how we can make 2013 a greener year for our blue planet.
