Earth Day is an annual event recognized around the world to demonstrate support for and to raise awareness of how we can work together to protect our planet. Even in this time of the coronavirus, which has impacted everyone across the globe, it shouldn’t be lost on us that the health of the environment is directly connected and related to our physical health.
As most of us will celebrate the 50thAnniversary of Earth Day from our homes this year, let’s not forget all of the people who are dedicated to improving the health of our planet. It’s been inspirational as a new board member of The Marine Mammal Center to watch as these organizations continue their efforts and deliver on their mission while adhering to the fast-evolving COVID-19 regulations both locally and state-wide. The work that these non-profits do is far from easy, and with fewer hands on deck, it is truly remarkable to see the commitment of these people who are doing their part to take care of our environment and all of its inhabitants.
This week, let’s pause for a moment and salute all of those organizations that are not only battling the pandemic and its ongoing challenges, but are also continuing the fight to preserve and protect our oceans, the health of its wildlife, and the environment.
Happy Earth Day from the Private Ocean team!
