The Google Doodle for Earth Day 2024 featured aerial photographs showcasing the planet's "natural landscapes and rich biodiversity", emphasising the importance of preserving these wonders for the generations to come.

According to the description, “the Google letters showcase some of the places across the globe where people, communities and governments work every day to help protect the planet’s natural beauty, biodiversity and resources."

It added, “These examples offer the promise of hope and optimism, but also remind us that there's much more to do to address the climate crisis and biodiversity loss."

Google has provided detailed explanations for each image featured in the Doodle. Take a look here:

G: Turks and Caicos Islands. The islands are home to important biodiversity areas with conservation efforts aimed at addressing ongoing environmental challenges, including protecting natural resources and reefs and restoring endangered species like the Turks and Caicos Islands rock iguana.
