Earth Day is celebrated worldwide on 22nd April every year since 1970, to honour the planet and all living things that inhibit it. The theme for this year’s observance is “Save Species”. Natureâ€™s gifts to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and many more that remain to be discovered.Â Unfortunately, human beings have irrevocably upset the balance of nature and, as a result, the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction. If we do not act now, extinction may be humanityâ€™s most enduring legacy.
Earth Day 2019 is celebrated with the theme “Save Speciesâ€. The theme highlights the need for change and seeks to inform the communities and leadership that action needs to be taken on climate by promoting a goal of environmental awareness through developing sustainable initiatives and galvanizing every human to pledge Acts of Green.
