Via TabulaRosa Systems - Today is Earth Hour at 8:30 pm Your Time

 Earth Hour is a global action of solidarity, vision, and unification in the face of the ongoing climate crisis and loss of biodiversity. With the effects of climate change and global threats affecting more and more people, there has never been a more necessary time for us to come together to restore our rich biodiversity for a sustainable future for all.

Tonight, I'll join millions of people around the world to show support for protecting our planet. As a parent, I am often talking with my family about the importance of healthy, thriving ecosystems and communities. Now, more than ever, that conversation feels incredibly important. So, we'll be spending our time tonight during Earth Hour sharing stories about our favorite discoveries in nature and what we look forward to uncovering in the years to come.

Nature has always been such a calming and reassuring space for me. In these uncertain times, I've found myself seeking mediation in the sunlight, watching videos online of natural places, and taking short breaks to listen to recordings of waves crashing against our coastal shores. I hope you're taking extra care to stay safe and healthy for yourself, your loved ones, and those around you. It is a stressful and emotional experience as our daily routines change. Tonight, be sure to take a moment to recognize the importance and wonder of our natural world by joining the Earth Hour movement at home or online following CDC guidelines.

If you're active on social media, follow along on Instagram and Twitter to see how WWF supporters and staff are spending their hour using #EarthHour. Show us what Earth Hour means to you and how you’re participating this year by tagging us (@wwf_act) and using the hashtag too.

We've seen how powerful our collective impact can be. We need to come together as a global community for each other and our planet.
