(WHTM) – Twenty-three species are considered an endangered species in Pennsylvania.

According to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, you can help endangered and threatened species and declining wildlife populations recover through a variety of actions, ranging from learning more about them and making habitat improvements to reporting sightings and participating in surveys.

Some tips they provide are delaying mowing, protecting large open grassy areas, using best management practices for conservation, protecting wetlands, reporting illegal behavior, and not getting too close to the animals.
