STEPS TO SAVE THE PLANET
This Earth Day, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) offers some simple suggestions on how everyone can do their part to help protect our planet.
Protect Endangered Species. Say "No" to Illegal Souvenirs. As you vacation in certain parts of the world, remember that some souvenirs could end up costing a lot more than you paid for them. Think twice before you buy any products made from any endangered species including animal hides and other body parts, tortoise-shell, ivory, or coral - they could be illegal. Supporting this damaging trade doesn't just add to the pressure on endangered species, you could also risk having your goods seized when you get home.
Protect Our Forests. Forests stand as great storehouses of natural life, but nearly two-thirds of the world's original forests are gone. Forests fall to the chainsaw at an accelerating pace, driven by an international timber trade that respects neither national boundaries nor ecological limits. To help save our forests:
Reduce Your Impact on Global Warming. As pollution increases, so does the world's average temperature. Global warming forces rapid changes in human and animal habitats. To help turn down the heat on the planet:
Collect Pennies. Schools can get involved by collecting pennies to support conservation projects.
