Search engine giant Google has created a special Doodle, featuring fun facts about six fascinating creatures to celebrate Earth Day 2019.

The doodle on its homepage is showing a series of animations featuring different, unique and special birds and animals.

The doodle shows ‘Wandering Albatross’ that has the widest wingspan in the world, next up is a ‘Coastal Redwood’ tree, which is the tallest tree in the world at 377 feet and it shows ‘Paedophryne amanuensis’ the smallest vertebrate in the world and ‘Amazon Water Lily’, the largest aquatic plant.

‘Coelacanth’, a 407 million years old fish that has been around since the days of dinosaurs and the deep ‘Cave Springtail’, which is among the deepest-dwelling terrestrial creatures, are also being displayed.

Each year, Earth Day- April 22- marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970, UNB reported.

Earth Day Network, the organisation that leads Earth Day observances worldwide, has designated 2019 to be the year to ‘Protect Our Species.’

According to EDN, the theme was picked to highlight the fact that human activities are directly linked to rapid extinction of species across the world.
