Happy Earth Day!


Happy Earth Day from all of us at the Young Naturalists' Club of BC! 
What will you do today to celebrate this amazing bio-diverse planet we share with so many plants and animals?

Something to ponder...
Do you ever wonder how many species are on the blue planet with us? Many scientists wonder this too and they keep finding unknown creatures. And they won't be finished any time soon since scientists think that 86% of  creatures who live on land and 91% of those who live in water still need to be discovered and described! Wow that's a lot of undiscovered wild things.
