Earth Day Eats – A celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day
The Marine Mammal Center – the world’s largest marine mammal hospital – commemorates the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with a weeklong, at-home celebration in partnership with celebrity Top Chefs to showcase the importance of sustainable fishing and farming to a healthy ocean…and as one of our core partners we’d like your support in spreading the word! Activity highlights include:
- Bravo’s Top Chef finalist Eric Adjepong sharing cooking tutorials and scrumptious recipes, and hosting Facebook Live events from April 15 through April 24.
- On April 18, Chef Eric joins a star-studded lineup of celebrity Top Chefs, including Michelle Minori, Edmund Konrad, Brian Malarkey and Adrienne Cheatham, with Facebook Live events scheduled throughout the day to discuss sustainable farming, fishing and cooking, and to hear how each chef makes a positive impact on the Earth.
- New online educational activities, recipes, and cooking videos to motivate people to make ocean-friendly choices, all hosted on the Center’s website.
- A National Geographic/ABC primetime special, “BORN WILD: THE NEXT GENERATION,” which features the lifesaving work of the Center’s marine mammal hospital. The special, which also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, gives viewers a revealing look at the Earth’s animals and their ecosystems, which face challenging environmental changes. Narrated by Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, the special airs April 22, 2020, at 8 p.m. on National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo WILD and Nat Geo Mundo.
