One of the reasons I made a change to move to regional NSW was to be able to spend more time in nature and for the first six months after my move I covered a lot of stories on my travel blog North Coast NSW Leisure and Life. I couldn't get enough of rainforests and beaches, but then I got very sick with Crohn's Disease and my nature exploring has had to go on hold for a while. It has been challenging for me not having the energy to discover more beautiful natural habitats and it has also made me even more grateful that I live in a beautiful part of the world that is abundant with trees, shrubs, flowers, birds, bees, dolphins and the list goes on.
One day though, all this beauty could disappear if we don't do our bit and put the pressure on our Governments to make preserving this planet a priority.
I have signed up to participate in Earth Hour this year. I hope you do too.
Earth Hour 2019 is scheduled for 8.30pm on Saturday the 30th of March. It started in Sydney in 2007 and has since grown into a global movement with over 190 countries taking part each year. As its origin, this country sets the tone for other countries taking part.
By signing up to switch off, you also have the chance to go into the draw to win an Intrepid Travel trip to Western Australia and Ningaloo Reef.
Sign up to switch off at 8:30pm on Saturday, 30 March 2019, and joining millions of people in over 190 countries to show the need for stronger climate action. Sign up to switch off here: https://www.earthhour.org.au
If you are in Sydney you might like to participate in Earth Hour at the Sydney Observatory.
Australia is home to some of the world’s most iconic and breathtaking natural landscapes and wildlife. But climate change is putting all this at risk. To protect our unique species and their habitats, we need Australia to step up now and take stronger action on the promise we made at the 2015 Paris Agreement.
