Today, Google is celebrating Earth day by using five doodles. The Doodles showcase five biomes from around the world. By clicking these doodles, Google by default provides some basic information about the Earth History. Earth Day was first celebrated in the year 1970, and was originally conceived by peace activist John McConnell in 1969. The day aims to raise public awareness about environmental issues.

Doodler Sophie Diao said in a blog post that;
“On a day like this, we remember and celebrate our home in this great and stunning ecosystem.”
Let’s take a look of some these doodles and see what Google is portraying on Earth day.
The Tundra has a lonely Polar Bear on an ice sheet below auroras. The doodle is highlighting the issue of melting ice.
A Fox is running through the trees in a temperate broad leaf forest. The logo is formed in patches in the patterns on the trees in the foreground.
A semi arid desert with an Tortoise (shaped in the letter ‘O’) reaching out to eat from a ‘G’ shaped shrub.
