The 22 April of every year, is marked as Earth Day. On this occasion, Google Doodle is taking people across the planet to take a look at some awe-inspiring organisms which inhabit it.

Google marked the day with an interactive doodle that explores six organisms and their earthly superlative. The Google Doodle dedicated to Earth Day 2019 aims to represent the diversity and uniqueness of the earth.

Google’s Monday Doodle features an animated slideshow exploring six different endangered organisms from different Earth elevations, some of which have only recently been discovered by humans. The Doodle also includes fun facts about the organisms and offers the curious the chance to learn more about them in search.

The Wandering Albatross has the world’s widest wingspan that helps the bird soar hundreds of miles without a flap. Coastal Redwood, or Sequoia sempervirens, are the tallest trees in the world. At 377 feet, the tree is equivalent to the height of 75 humans. Paedophryne Amauensis is the smallest frog and the smallest-known vertebrate in the world at 7.7 mm in length only. The Amazon water lily is one of the world’s biggest aquatic plants, capable of bearing the weight of a small person. Coelacanths, at 407 million years old, are now a rare order of fish which have been around on earth since the days of dinosaurs. Deep-cave springtails are primitive eyeless insects that scientists have called the deepest land animal ever found.

The theme of this year’s Earth Day is Protect Our Species and is intended to draw attention to the rapid global destruction and reduction of the world’s plant and wildlife populations. EarthDay.org links the declines to human-driven phenomena such as climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides.

“All living things have an intrinsic value, and each plays a unique role in the complex web of life,” EarthDay.org said in a statement. “We must work together to protect endangered and threatened species.

“If we do not act now, extinction may be humanity’s most enduring legacy.”
