–The California Assembly passed Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 23, by Senator Bill Monning (D-Carmel), to establish California Wildlife Day in the state.

“I am proud the California Legislature unanimously passed SCR 23, to recognize the Spring Equinox as California Wildlife Day,” Senator Monning said. “Many Californians feel an obligation to protect our environment for future generations and California Wildlife Day will help advance this through public education about native plants and animals. California is home to some of the most diverse and extraordinary plants and wildlife in the world, and SCR 23 will help Californians cultivate a stronger appreciation and knowledge of our state’s diverse and unique ecosystem.”

California Wildlife Day will be recognized every year on the Spring Equinox. This year the Spring Equinox is on March 20, 2017.

Currently, there is a National Wildlife Day, which was established in 2005, in memory of conservationist Steve Irwin to bring awareness of endangered animals nationally and worldwide.

Previously, SCR 23 passed the Senate on a vote of 40 to 0.
