Earth Day 2019 – Protecting Our Species
This year’s Earth Day theme is focused on protecting our species from the rapid extinction we have been witnessing in our world today. The unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides to name a few (earthday.org). Learn about the many valuable species that are endangered and the ways in which you could help protect them by visiting the Earth Day Network.
Earth Day marks one of the largest demonstrations of civic action in the world. Take part yourself by joining us in the many events we have planned for Earth Week!
