A simple but effective way to help endangered species to survive is by joining clubs that aim to protect and conserve nature and wildlife. By giving them a small amount on a frequent basis you support them and make it possible for them to set up campaigns, reservations etc. In return you mostly receive a magazine which keeps you updated on their activities. Here are some links to such clubs, on their sites you will find information on how to join and support them. Please do, it costs hardly anything and you will be doing a great thing, and the best thing is that you can then feel happy about your good deed and your part in wildlife/nature conservation.
"Greenpeace is an independent and non-political, international organisation, dedicated to the protection of the environment by peaceful means.
Greenpeace is nothing more or less than the sum of its supporters.

Greenpeace supporters come from all age groups, all walks of life and many different races. If you support Greenpeace now, you are one of the 2.5 million people in over 158 countries who have chosen to demonstrate their concern for our planet.
Thanks to the moral and financial support of our supporters, Greenpeace continues to be the world's most effective environmental organisation."

"To protect the diversity of life on Earth, we need to protect the biodiversity hotspots, major tropical wilderness regions, and key marine ecosystems. Conservation International (CI) uses a powerful set of tools-science, economics, policy, and community awareness-to promote biodiversity conservation on the ground worldwide. We're turning your support into effective and creative conservation solutions. Together, we can make a lasting difference and safeguard the health of our planet for future generations."
The Nature Conservancy
"The mission of Nature Conservancy is to preserve plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
Nature's real estate agent. That's The Nature Conservancy. Among environmental organizations, we fill a unique niche: preserving habitats and species by buying the lands and waters they need to survive.
The Nature Conservancy operates the largest private system of nature sanctuaries in the world--more than 1,500 preserves in the United States alone. Some are postage-stamp size, others cover thousands of acres. All of them safeguard imperiled species of plants and animals."
Also look for local conservation groups and attend their meetings. Subscribe to magazines and newsletters. Ask them for more information on how you can help. And if there are no local clubs or groups around you, start one! Research on the topic and write to the bigger organizations for advice on how to run meetings and such. Start weekly or monthly activities, like planting trees or picking up trash. Start a recycling program in your local neighborhood. Start an ecology club at school, which will both help the world and earn you a merit on a college application! Remember - every little bit counts.
