Help me save this beautiful moth...

While doing a search on silkmoths today, I accidentally learned about the 'Spanish Moon Moth'. According to wikipedia, it's on the IUCN Red List of Threatened species, which sounds pretty serious. This is such an amazing moth and I would hate to disappear. Please help me save them before they are gone forever...

That's an extraordinarily beautiful moth. Do they exist in North America?

This moth is from Europe. Don't know what I can do to save it. But, I enjoyed reading about it.
