On Saturday 23rd March at 8:30pm, the world will unite in support of people and the planet. Iconic landmarks such as The London Eye and Buckingham Palace will be turning off their lights in a show of solidarity.  

Earth Hour is a time to switch off from distractions and focus on doing something positive for our planet.  

Ahead of Earth Hour, I met the WWF Earth Hour team in Parliament to find out more and support this initiative. 

With a quarter of UK mammals now facing extinction risk, from puffins to bluebells, bumblebees and mountain hares it’s important to highlight the challenges facing UK wildlife.
