Earth Day 2019 – Protect Our Species
“In nature, nothing exists alone.”
— Rachel Carson, 1962
Human activity is causing the greatest rate of extinction of species in the world since the loss of the dinosaurs 60 million years ago. All living things have an intrinsic value, and we urgently need to act now to protect our threatened and endangered species.
The Earth Day Network (www.earthday.org) is a non-profit organisation with a mission to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide.
This year, the Earth Day Network is asking people around the globe to join its campaign to Protect Our Species.
