The Breathtaking Photos Of Spectacular Places On Earth (Earth Hour Special)

Earth Hour is globally celebrated environmental event organized by World Wide Fund for Nature. This is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. Earth hour was conceived by WWF and The Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, when 2.2 million residents of Sydney participated by turning off all non-essential lights. Following Sydney’s lead, many other cities around the world adopted the event in 2008. Earth Hour 2011 is taking place on March 26, 2011 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., local time and we are trying to showcase few of the millions of stunning photographs to give it a tribute and to create some awareness about this event. We would appreciate all of you who can create awareness in your circle and do whatever you can for our beautiful earth. You might be interested to see how we celebrated Earth Day in 2009 and how we celebrated Earth Hour in 2010.
