In honour of Earth Day 2018 on April 22nd, Dr Jane was featured on the daily Google Doodle!
Earth Day, promoted by the Earth Day Network, is known as “the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement.” Started in 1970 in the US, and globally in 1990, today the Earth Day Network calls it the largest secular holiday in the world and estimates that a billion people worldwide celebrate. The holiday raises awareness of environmental issues and encourages people to think about their own environmental impact. This leads to people supporting environmental initiatives and being motivated to adopt Earth-friendly habits, all of which we are big fans of here at the Jane Goodall Institute Australia.
In the video accompanying the Google Doodle, Dr Jane shares her message to the world on Earth Day 2018, including some of her inspiration and what we can all do to have a positive impact on our planet. “I am hopeful that this Earth Day Google Doodle will live as a reminder for people across the globe that there is still so much in the world worth fighting for. With all of us working together, I am hopeful that it is not too late to turn things around if we all do our part for this beautiful planet.”
