Wildopeneye thinks there are a lot of reasons to celebrate Earth Day this year and also some compelling reasons to strive harder to live in better harmony with the rest of God’s Creation. News this week of the catastrophic coral bleaching in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef reminds us that the World is already suffering the cost of climate change.
First some good news:
- The United Nations Sustainable Development signing ceremony is being held today 22 April.
- Google, Ebay and Jet Blue have joined the growing list of businesses (see below) that have pledged to work closely with the U.S. government to combat wildlife trafficking both at home and abroad. See the African Wildlife Foundation webpage on the subject of the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance.
Shouldn’t that read Anti-Trafficking Alliance? Anyway, we know what they mean, and that means the more businesses who set themselves against the illegal wildlife trade the better!
