September is Save the Koala Month, National Save a Tiger Month and has a day for just about everyone:
September 24th is World Gorilla Day. All four subspecies of gorilla are considered to be critically endangered, which means they could go extinct during our lifetimes. Gorillas only have one natural predator, the leopard, but they are susceptible to habitat loss when forests are cleared for farming or other development and to poaching. Though they have often been depicted as scary, gorillas are actually gentle plant and insect eaters. Male gorillas can reach heights of 6 ft and weight 300-400 lbs; females are usually about half that size. Gorillas and humans share over 95% of our DNA. As such, gorillas have unique fingerprints, like humans, but unlike humans, they also have unique nose prints!
September 19 is World Cleanup Day. OK, but this year is probably cancelled, right? Wrong! Everyone can do some digital clean up from their very own home. What is a digital cleanup? It's getting rid of files that we don't need from our tablets, phones, and other devices. We probably don't realize the effects of our digital trash, but it's been reported that the carbon footprint of the internet and the systems supporting it account to about 3.7% of global greenhouse emissions, which is similar to the amount produced globally by the airline industry. Every email we send or excess file we store requires energy, even when it's not being used. So even if you can't get out to physically remove trash from the environment, you can certainly DELETE trash from your digital devices. Deleting digital waste not only helps the environment, it improves your devices' performance and enhances your efficiency, too. Check out these sites for more eye-opening facts and helpful tips about handling digital trash:
