EARTH DAY 2019
The theme of Earth Day 2019 is protecting our species. While there are many factors that lead to extinction, like habitat loss and overfishing, climate change is a major contributor to the disappearance of species. This Earth Day, we’ve got four ideas for how you can take action to solve climate change and protect our species.
- Take the pledge to vote. If we care about climate change, we need to show up to the polls and elect candidates who care about protecting our shared environment.
- Spread the word about how climate change and extinction are related. Consider watching and sharing this video.
- Shrink your carbon footprint. Learn about the different ways you can cut your personal contribution to climate change here.
- Sign the petition to make Earth Day a national holiday around the world.
We hope you’ll find ways to honor Earth Day today, this week, and all year.
