Land and ocean animals, including humans, are all part of an interconnected system working together. As guardians of our planet, it is our responsibility to take care of the Earth for the animals, for us, and for our future generations. Right now, when we burn fossil fuels, like oil, carbon dioxide gets emitted into the air. This excess carbon dioxide is disrupting the Earth's balance and making it harder for animals to survive.
