Actions for Animals

 
Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.

The 22nd April each year is Earth Day.

Earth Day is on every day and can be celebrated wherever you are – even in space!  Flood the earth with hope, optimism and action!

In 2020, Earth Day is 50 years old.  The theme is Climate Action.  As its website says,

Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems which make our world habitable.  

If we look at the start of 2020 alone, the Australian bushfires left terrible damage behind them.  Organic Lesson wanted to give an idea of the severity of the crisis, by re-creating the smoke haze in scenic locations around the world and you can see what places like London, Singapore, Hong Kong, New York, Paris and the Alps would have looked like.
