Eugene, Oregon (PressExposure) September 04, 2009 -- Fred Smilek is a college student in his senior year living in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. Right now Fred Smilek is the president and founder of the Society to Save Endangered Species. The Society to Save Endangered Species is working diligently to conserve many wonderful species that are on the brink of extinction. "I started our group as a way for concerned environmentalists to meet and exchange ideas while networking with environmental professionals to achieve the common goal of preventing the extinction of various majestic animals", says Fred Smilek. "These animals are a key part of our ecosystems and their extinction could have disastrous effects for the globe."
Since its humble inception two years ago, the Society has been able to raise nearly $25,000. Fred Smilek is working closely with other organizations such as the WWF ( World Wildlife Fund) in order to give rare species of animals, now bordering on the brink of extinction, a fighting chance at survival. Saving endangered species became a priority for our country following the creation of the Endangered Species Act of 1973. It is generally considered to be one of the most far reaching acts ever created by a nation to aid in the protection of endangered species.
