THE ISLAND PRESIDENT
Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed is confronting a problem greater than any world leader has ever faced - the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. His is the most low-lying country in the world, and a minor rise in sea level would literally erase it from the map. Despite the modest size of his country, Nasheed has become one of the leading international voices for urgent action on climate change.

EARTH DAY AT THE PHOENIX ZOO!
It’s a Party for the Planet! Celebrate Earth Day, conservation and nature at the Phoenix Zoo. Water – Use It Wisely (including Mesa conservation staff) will be joining in on the fun once again with our fun-in-the-sun duck float trivia contest. Children young and old can test their water know-how, then take home one of our “oh-so-cute” ducks to float in the pool or bathtub to help remind them to use water wisely every day of the year – not just on Earth Day. Visit us at the Harmony Farm section of the Zoo. Don’t worry; we have a lot of cool stuff for the “big” kids, too. See you there!
