Earth Day celebrates its 50th anniversary on 22nd April 2020. A virtual event this year, Earth Day's focus is how climate change is impacting the Earth's landscapes and biodiversity. We have created a special Earth Day 50th Anniversary gallery to celebrate the day, the diversity of the Earth's landscapes and its endangered species.
