Watch: Places and Animals Worth Saving
The world is now watching. You will either be lauded by future generations, or vilified by them … You are the last best hope of Earth. We ask you to protect it. Or we — and all living things we cherish — are history. -Leonardo DiCaprio
Discover ways that you can get involved to spread the urgent message about climate change, and learn how your own personal choices can have a positive impact.
Also raising awareness to this important issue recently was the 2016 WCFF Film Festival. The Wildlife Conservation Film Festival’s mission is to inform, engage and inspire audiences about the need and importance for the protection of global biodiversity.
One of the entries, “Dream” (featuring Natalie Bergman, Ryan Merchant, Keenan O’Meara, and Tal Altman), does just that.
Watch it now:
#EarthWeek continues tonight with Years of Living Dangerously: Gathering Storm, featuring Jack Black and Ian Somerhalder, who investigate the potential repercussions of rising sea levels.
