Timeline for Completion: Annual Event – March 30, 2019 at 8:30 p.m. local time
This Earth Hour, March 30, 2019 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.
This year, when you turn out the lights, show that you want to reverse the decline of wildlife and visit Connect2Earth.org to share what wildlife and nature means to you.
