Despite the pandemic and global lockdown, there is some positive news regarding the environment. The waters in the Venetian canals have cleared, LA smog has disappeared and in Thailand restrictions keeping humans and harmful waste off beaches are having a beneficial effect on the numbers of endangered leatherback sea turtles.

Today, April 22nd, is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, an annual event celebrated around the world to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it now involves over 10,ooo environmental groups across 183 countries.

This year St. Columba’s has joined the digital community to raise awareness, and in support will host a College Kahoot Quiz.
