    Earth Day 2019: Protect our Species

    We must work together to protect endangered and threatened species: bees, coral, elephants, fgiraffes, insects, whales and more.

    “In nature, nothing exists alone.” — Rachel Carson, 1962<br />

    Nature’s gifts to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and many more that remain to be discovered. Unfortunately, human beings have irrevocably upset the balance of nature and, as a result, the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago. But unlike the fate of the dinosaurs, the rapid extinction of species in our world today is the result of human activity.
