Earth Day: Google Doodle celebrates the beauty of our fragile planet

Search engine pays tribute to ‘vastness of Earth’s diversity’ with five stunning illustrations from artist  Sophie Diao

Google has commemorated Earth Day with a stunning series of Doodles showing five of our planet’s different biomes.

The search engine said April 22 was the “one day that transcends culture, language, and tradition”.

It commissioned a number of illustrations from “Doodler” Sophie Diao.

She said: “The vastness of Earth’s diversity makes it an intimidating topic, but in the end I chose to highlight Earth’s five major biomes: the tundra, forest, grasslands, desert, and coral reefs.

“In each illustration, you’ll find one animal who’s been singled out for their 15 minutes of fame.

“Each time you visit Google.com, you’ll randomly receive one of the five doodles. Keep refreshing to admire a different side of Earth’s immense beauty.”

Earth Day has been around for 46 years after it was first suggested by a peace activist called John McConnell back in 1969.

“It’s a day to reflect,” Diao added.

“I am personally in awe of nature’s persistence and creativity. Our planet – with its alternate scorching heat and bitter cold, its jagged peaks and deep trenches – may not always be kind to its inhabitants.

“Yet somehow the flora and fauna of Earth manage to thrive.

“On a day like this, we remember and celebrate our home in this great and stunning ecosystem.”
