This year WWF Earth Hour is on the 24th March at 8.30pm, it is an hour in which every year more than a million people switch off their lights. It is to show that they care about the global change to our planet. WWF want to inspire more and more families every year to join in, by doing this they are showing a new generation that it is so important to look after the world we live on and the animals that share it with us.
