Every April 22nd since 1970, the world celebrates Earth Day, which is considered to mark the birth of the modern environmental movement. This year’s theme is “Protect our Species”. According to the Earth Day Network, we are amidst the largest period of species extinction in the last 60 million years, losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the normal rate, with multiple extinctions daily. In other words, the theme is really an SOS – Save Our Species!
