It's time to celebrate National Snail Day on May 29th! This day was created to bring awareness to the importance of snails in our terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Snails have been around for millions of years and are a vital part of the food chain. They help aerate the soil, eat pests, and provide food for other animals like birds and fish. So let's take some time out of our day to appreciate these amazing creatures by learning more about them and how we can help protect their habitats!
