Local MP, Mike Weir, has showed his support to this year’s Earth Hour by making a pledge to help protect the planet.
WWF held an event in London ahead of the global lights out event set for Saturday, March 29, at 8.30 p.m. MPs were inspired to celebrate Earth Hour as a reminder to do their bit for the planet and advocate within their constituencies for the importance of building a sustainable future for both people and the planet.
Mr Weir said: “Our natural world is precious to all life that inhabits it, but we need to do more to protect it. WWF’s Earth Hour reminds us that there are simple things we can all do for the planet, not for just one hour, but every day. It’s a great opportunity to bring together millions of people from across the world with one united goal - to help protect our planet.”
This year for Earth Hour, all of the money raised from Earth Hour is going towards WWF’s vital conservation work in the Mau Mara Serengeti, Kenya, which is one of the most spectacular places on Earth and home to some of the world’s most iconic wildlife including lions, cheetahs and African elephants.
