Make a Difference on World Environment Day!

This Sunday, June 5, marks World Environment Day (WED). Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), WED is a global day to take positive action on behalf of the environment.

This year’s theme for WED is “Forests: Nature at Your Service.” Forests clean and store our water, provide homes and livelihoods to more than 1.6 billion people around the world and help slow climate change by storing carbon. Forests are also home to innumerable plant and animal species, including chimpanzees and other endangered great apes. Learn more about forests and what you can do to protect them.

There are a number of ways you can celebrate WED on Sunday.

Happy World Environment Day!
