    SPEAK UP FOR NATURE

    Act Now

EARTH HOUR 2021 Speak up for nature by pledging to switch off this Earth Hour. 2021 is a critical year for nature - where world leaders will make global commitments and decisions on climate action, sustainable development, and biodiversity. Take action for a healthy natural world as it is one of our greatest allies to fight climate change.

Get to know more about the history of the Hour!

⚠️ In light of the current situation, the WWF India organising team recommends all individuals to take part digitally. You can be spending the Hour with friends and family inside your home. Don't forget to follow all social distancing norms and precautions for public safety.

WHY SHOULD I TAKE PART?

🆘 Our planet is changing at an alarming rate. Last year was a wake-up call for everyone. Loss of nature has resulted in catastrophic weather events, locusts plague, wildfires, and the Covid-19 pandemic. These are some glaring examples of nature, sending us an SOS call.

It is more evident than ever that our well-being and that of the planet are intrinsically linked, and both are under severe threat.

India, the 7th largest country globally, is home to a treasure trove of incredible wildlife and is known to be a biodiversity hotspot. But, as the country embarks on a programme of rapid development, India's wildlife, including charismatic species such as the tiger, elephant, rhino, and their habitats, face the constant threat of degradation and fragmentation.

But don't be disheartened - all is not gloomy! We are optimistic that concerted conservation actions will contribute to a more secure and sustainable future for all. Now is the time to give nature a chance to bounce back again!

HOW CAN I JOIN?

This Earth Hour 2021, be part of a global movement to "Speak Up for Nature" – and add your voice for our fragile planet.

Remember, Earth Hour is all about people power. Your active support will make a tremendous impact to protect nature and everything that it holds together.

LIGHTS OUT TO SPEAK UP FOR NATURE! 🌏

Don't forget to make a symbolic gesture of turning off your non-essential lights in solidarity for our planet on 27 March 2021 at 8:30 PM.
