On the 30th March, Earth Hour takes place between 8:30 and 9:30pm local time, and it’s the ideal moment to think about our environment. Organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature, it’s especially poignant here in Australia because we have some the world’s most beautiful and iconic wildlife and landscapes. Unfortunately, our biodiversity is under massive threat thanks to climate change, and it will affect some of our most beloved wildlife like koalas, rock-wallabies, green turtles and Adélie penguins.
We hope all our patients will join us in switching off their lights for Earth Hour. While it’s true this is just a symbolic gesture, this movement is supported by millions of people worldwide. Did you know Earth Hour originally began in Sydney back in 2007? This year, the WWF is inviting all Australians to #Connect2Earth, so we can all work towards understanding and protecting biodiversity and can live more sustainably.
