WASHINGTON, D.C. — The 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the global public health crisis are both stark reminders of why we need to protect wildlife and safeguard our air, water and public lands.
“The 50th anniversary of Earth Day is a golden opportunity to reflect upon the importance of wildlife conservation and safely connect with nature,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “The unprecedented public health crisis we face today is a stark reminder of how we must remain vigilant to safeguard our wildlife, air, water and public lands. From accelerating climate change to an escalating wildlife extinction crisis, we all can make a difference. This Earth Day we may be physically distancing, but together we can and must act to ensure our wildlife and way of life endure for future generations.”
