Happy Earth Day 2012!

Happy Earth Day 2012!

Here at BHL, we believe we can all make a difference to improve the health of our planet and its biodiversity. By providing researchers (and the public) with free access to literature about the world’s species, we’re empowering them with the knowledge necessary to better understand and protect life on earth. If you believe in the importance of this mission as much as we do, consider giving a gift to BHL. Together, we can make a difference for generations to come.

We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day than by showcasing its rich diversity of life, particularly through the brilliant illustrations we have in our collection. Thus, below we present some of our favorite (and most popular) images. You can find these, and nearly 30,000 more, free images by visiting our Flickr profile.

Now it’s your turn. How are you celebrating Earth Day this year?
