25 Adorable Animals You Can Help Protect Right Now

Each year the United Nations observes March 3rd as World Wildlife Day. This year's theme is "The future of wildlife is in our hands," to draw attention to the number of challenges faced by the world's wildlife that we have the power to stop, like poaching, habitat loss, and animal trafficking.

At GlobalGiving, we're proud to partner with nonprofits from all around the globe working to save and protect wildlife. In fact, we've got some pretty cute animals that could use your help right now. Click any of the images below and learn how you can help protect adorable animals for years to come.
