Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and this year's theme is climate action. It will be a unique celebration, as many countries around the world are observing stay-at-home orders to help flatten the COVID-19 curve. Positive environmental effects of these orders are already evident, notably bluer skies and increased wildlife activity in Canada and around the world.
