Google marks Earth Day 2018 with animated doodle depicting Dr Jane Goodall's message to preserve environment
On the occasion of Earth Day this year, the internet search engine giant has put up an animated doodle on its home page to create awareness about the need to protect and sustain the environment. You can click on the start button and watch an interesting animated video on the 48th anniversary of the observation.

The doodle features world famous anthropologist, conservationist, activist and animal lover Dr Jane Goodall, 84, narrating her experiences with the nature and living beings in the environment such as birds and animals. She came into lime light with her revealing study of chimpanzees' social and family life in Tanzania's Gombe National Park to conclude that they too have individual personalities like human beings.

Being an animated video, one must watch it and absorb the message of protecting our environment and Mother Earth. Dr Goodall herself partnered with Google for the doodle and you hear her punch line, "What better day than Earth Day than to really make a determined effort to live in better harmony with nature".

This year, the focus of the observance is on putting an end to plastic pollution.

Here are a few quotes for the occasion.

 "A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people." —Franklin D. Roosevelt

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together … all things connect." —Chief Seattle

"The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share." —Lady Bird Johnson

"Mother Earth is the most beautiful Bodhisattva." -Thich Nhat
