  8. Today's Facebook post:

    Happy Earth Day! Today is an opportunity! It’s a reminder to reevaluate our behaviors and how they impact the environment. What can we do better? How can we give back to our planet? What can we do to focus on the restoration of damaged habitats?

    If you can get out into nature today, treat it well. Tread gently. Show respect for wildlife. Pick up litter, even if it’s not your own. Show the Earth some love, enjoy its beauty, and use this time to reflect on how you, as an individual or as part of a group, can make a difference in this world that we all share. This is the ideal time for optimism and action.

    “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”
    —Jane Goodall

The Crested Serpent Eagle is a medium-sized bird of prey that is found in forested habitats across tropical Asia. They fly over the forest canopy on broad wings and tail have wide white and black bars. They call often with a loud, piercing and familiar three or two-note call. They often feed on snakes, giving them their name and are placed along with the ''Circaetus'' snake-eagles in the subfamily ''Circaetinae''.
