All the people around the world are observing World Earth Day today (April 22). The Google Doodle dedicated to Earth Day 2019 aims to represent the diversity and uniqueness of the earth.
The doodle features six organisms which have unique qualities or earthly superlatives, such as being the tallest, smallest, oldest, and so on. “The last thing I wanted to do was feature animals based on their cuteness or how they might appeal in some way to my mammalian sensibilities. We tried to focus on having a good range of organisms from around the globe,” says Google’s Earth Day 2019 doodle creator Kevin Laughlin.
Earth Day was founded in 1970 in response to an oil spill that occurred a year earlier off California’s coast, spewing over 3 million gallons of oil, leaving thousands of seabirds, dolphins, seals and sea lions dead. The annual Earth day celebration aims at raising awareness of environmental issues, with events around the globe promoting recycling, pollution reduction and care for the planet.
