Help Protect our Planet this Earth Day!

Every year on April 22nd people across the globe come together to celebrate Earth Day and this year is no different. 

This past year has seen the effects of the climate catastrophe like no other. From snow in Texas, wild fires burning across most continents and global pandemic born from illegal wildlife trade and wet markets that has brought the world to its knees - now more than ever - the world needs our help. 

Making small changes in no way diminishes the fact that the whole system needs to be uprooted and re-evaluated but its good to know that there are things you can do that can also make a difference - no matter how small.
