Reading Garden | Earth Week
Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, there are Earth Day events in more than 193 countries and are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.
Earth Day 2019 Theme: Save Our Wildlife
Earth Day 2019 focus will be on the need to protect and save all species. Many of us have seen images of enormous flocks of birds congregating in marshes, herds of wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle migrating through Africa, along with our most iconic species–tigers, elephants, giraffes, and rhinos. All of these species are imperiled. But it’s not just endangered species we should care about — land animals, sea creatures, and plants around the world have seen their numbers severely reduced.
All of our plants and animals have value in themselves and are part of the web of life! Our lives and theirs are linked together inextricably. Without them, our own species might not survive.
