What is the best way to celebrate Endangered Species Day? One answer is to start considering switching to solar energy.
Solar energy creates clean, renewable power from the sun and has a positive impact on the environment by helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
Most electricity that powers the U.S. today is from fossil fuels, which plays a role in damaging the planet. Not only does it affect our health, and make us more susceptible to illness, it harms the wildlife that we share our world with.
Why should we care about endangered species?
The conservation of endangered species is important for humans too. A well-balanced ecosystem purifies the environment, giving us clean air to breathe, a healthy water system to support diverse marine life, and arable land for agricultural production. It also provides us with unique plants with medicinal properties, which serve as the foundation of our medicines. When ecosystems fail, our own health is at risk. When saving endangered species, we are ultimately saving ourselves.
By using solar energy, we can create a world where our animals can thrive and give endangered species a better chance at survival. And we want to create a world where humans can power their homes without interfering with our ecosystem.
Wildlife may seem detached from us humans at times, but they are the core of our ecosystem.
Are you ready to take an enormous step in helping our planet and our endangered species, especially the panther, sea turtle and 131 more in Florida?
