Google Doodle celebrates Earth Day 2019

Google has created a Doodle featuring fun facts about six fascinating creatures to celebrate Earth Day 2019.

On the Google search page, a series of animations introduce different unique and special birds and animals.

The doodle shows 'Wandering Albatross’ that has the widest wingspan in the world, next up is a 'Coastal Redwood' tree, which is the tallest tree in the world at 377 feet and it shows 'Paedophryne amanuensis' which is the smallest vertebrate in the world and 'Amazon Water Lily', which is the largest aquatic plant.

Then there is the 'Coelacanth', a fish that has been around since the days of dinosaurs and is 407 million old and the deep Cave Springtail', which is among the deepest-dwelling terrestrial creatures.

Each year, Earth Day—April 22—marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

The theme for Earth Day 2019 is 'Protect Our Species'.

It aims to draw attention to the rapid extinction of species across the world, which is directly linked to human activity which causes climate change, deforestation and pollution.UNB
