Nature’s gift to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and the many more that we have yet to discover. Unfortunately, human beings have irrevocably altered the balance of nature and the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction it has seen since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago. But unlike the fate of the dinosaurs, the rapid extinction of species in our world today is the result of human activity.
For much of the past ten years, beekeepers, primarily in the United States and Europe, have been reporting annual hive losses of 30 percent or higher, substantially more than is considered normal or sustainable. In fact, one in four wild bee species in the U.S. is at risk of extinction.
90% of plants need bees to pollinate

Together we can work together to Save our Environment!
From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.
The Earth Day Network is focusing on fundamentally changing human attitude and behavior about plastics and catalyzing a significant reduction in plastic pollution. The focus of Earth Day 2018 was to End Plastic Pollution and the work continues.
April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In recognition of this milestone Beaches Earth Day organization is launching a Beaches Earth Challenge 2020.
Beaches Earth Challenge 2020 will engage Beach residents to collect information in areas including air quality, water quality, biodiversity, pollution, and human health.
Through Beaches Earth Challenge 2020, residents will learn about their local conditions, and leverage information to inspire collaborative action and influence city policy decisions.
