"What a Wonderful World" for Earth Day


"The song, 'What a Wonderful World,' is one of the most recognizable songs in American history. Originally sung by Louis Armstrong, it was written to offer a positive and hopeful look into the future. It talks about babies being born into our world and all the world has to offer them. It offers simple, relatable images of the human experience and the world we live in. This version is performed by David Attenborough, and the absolutely gorgeous shots of nature it features really brings out the theme of this classic song.

Scientists are not exactly sure, but we think there are about 8.7 million species that share this planet with us. Lots of species go extinct every year for natural reasons, but humans have caused the rate of extinction to increase 1,000 times more than the natural flow of nature.As we move forward, let's keep reminding ourselves of the role we play in preserving our world for future generations."
