Celebrating World Environment Day through your lens


Whether tending a backyard garden or hiking across a glacier, time spent in nature is what motivates many environmentalists to protect our planet.  

So, to celebrate World Environment Day on June 5, we invited you to share photos of the natural world that inspire you. The response was phenomenal. We received nearly 500 photos, and we're excited to showcase a selection of our favorites in Vital Signs.  

We hope these photos motivate you to continue fighting for our magnificent yet fragile home in the face of climate change — today and every day.

Hope for a warming planet
