Earth Day 2019: Protect our Species
Every year, all around the globe, Earth Day is celebrated. Many different events, campaigns and activities are held worldwide. Here in Aruba we do our best to lead by example and treat every day as Earth Day!
Now there are more than 1 billion people in 192 countries taking part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world!
Many hotels, resorts and organizations in Aruba take part in this movement by hosting various activities.
Earth Day Network is asking people to join the "Protect our Species" campaign. Our goals are to:
- Educate and raise awareness about the accelerating rate of extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.
- Achieve major policy victories that protect broad groups of species as well as individual species and their habitats.
- Build and activate a global movement that embraces nature and its values.
- Encourage individual actions such as adopting plant based diet and stopping pesticide and herbicide use.
