This Earth Hour, Sat., March 28, 2020 at 8:30 p.m. local time, switch off your lights and #Connect2Earth to draw attention to wildlife loss in Canada and around the world.
In Canada, populations of more than one-half of monitored species have already declined by 83 per cent on average since 1970. Globally, we’re on track to lose 67 per cent of wildlife populations by 2020.
The causes? Habitat loss, pollution, unsustainable harvest, invasive species and climate change, which risks causing one in six species to go extinct.
