Earth Day is an annual event which is celebrated on April 22, to show support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now presently celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.
Earth Day 2014 has been marked with a collection of five animated doodles on the Google homepage, showing the Rufous hummingbird, the veiled chameleon, the moon jellyfish, the dung beetle, a puffer fish and a pair of Japanese macaques on the google homepage .
This year’s Earth Day is the 44th, after it was celebrated first on 1970, It is organized by the Earth Day Network, which aims to “inform and energize populations so they will act to secure a healthy future for themselves and their children”.
Google have done well to choose a unique selection of critters to celebrate the movement, although not many people would put the dung beetle on their list of favourite animals. The Japanese macaques are a
far more traditional selection, shivering stoically in their hot springs as the snow falls.
In fact the macaque is the largest animal featured, suggesting that for potential clickers smaller is cuter. The Rufous hummingbird is far more the smallest hummingbird species, growing to 8cm long, whereas the bee hummingbird is a full three centimetres smaller.
