Google Doodle celebrates Earth Day with a tribute to aerial photography

Google has created a special doodle to mark the annual Earth Day. “The Earth Day doodle features aerial views of the planet’s natural beauty and biodiversity and reminds us of the importance of protecting it for future generations,” the company said.

The Google logo highlights global efforts to preserve the Earth’s natural beauty, biodiversity, and resources in diverse communities around the world. These serve as a reminder that tackling the climate crisis and biodiversity loss requires further action.

What the Earth Day Doodle stands for G: Turks and Caicos Islands. The islands are home to important areas of biodiversity with conservation efforts aimed at addressing ongoing environmental challenges.
