To celebrate Endangered Species Week, WPC is putting the spotlight on endangered Canadian species who desperately need our help.

This spotlight is on the eastern massasauga rattlesnake, which is listed as Endangered in the Carolinian region of Ontario.

One of the best starting points in saving an endangered animal is to learn about what makes that animal special. We’ve pulled together some quick and easy ways for you to learn about the eastern massasauga rattlesnake
