Earth Day Network (EDN) organization that leads Earth Day worldwide has chosen the theme of Earth Day 2019 to protect threatened and endangered species.
The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement and creation of landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws.
Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in more than 190 countries connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.
