Everyaction,

I hope you're faring well and staying safe.

Earth Day is a great time to think about the bold ideas that will help curb the extinction crisis and ensure we have a livable climate in the future.

The Center is pushing a plan to protect 30% of wild places on land and in our oceans by 2030 and half of them by 2050.

Join Public Lands Director Randi Spivak and me later today in a discussion about this ambitious idea at our next Saving Life on Earth webinar at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, on this Earth Day, here are a few key things to do to help save the planet:

Stay in the fight: This movement is only as good as its people. We know that when people come together and speak in one voice to defend the wild, change happens. The world becomes a better place — not just for animals and plants but for everyone. It takes each of us to make that happen. And even better, tell everyone you know to get involved.   

Help us hold polluters and politicians in check: We're what's standing in the way of those who would foul our air and water, poison our rivers, bulldoze our public lands, mow down our forests and ruin our climate. Resistance works, whether it's phone calls to Congress, rallies in the streets, emails to decision-makers or just telling your friends and neighbors what's going on.

Never lose touch with your love for the wild: It's easy to feel a little adrift in these difficult times. For me — and everyone at the Center — wild places and wild animals offer an anchor in this world, our reason for fighting to save the life that's around us. Even while we're isolating at home, it's important to connect with the wild via photos, videos, books or, if it's safe, a trip outside to somewhere close to your heart.

I'm grateful to spend Earth Day with you all, even if it's virtual.

I hope you'll join me later today to talk about how we can save life on Earth. Sign up here.

For the wild,

Kierán Suckling
