On April 22, 1970, millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development. Earth Day is now a global event each year.
Our planet is host to millions of species that we know and love. Unfortunately, the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago.
That is why CISV International is joining Earth Day Network‘s #ProtectOurSpecies campaign to raise awareness on this global issue.
