Welcome to Virtual Earth Day 2022
Thank you for participating in Earth Day 2022!
It was such a wonderful experience spending the entire month of April with our DFW Metroplex schools and students, sharing science experiments, art activities, educational videos and Q&A sessions with DFW Airport professionals, scientists, and engineers.
We’re always looking to improve DFW Airport Earth Day, relying on feedback from schools and students like you, and would love to learn more about your experience with this year’s virtual event through a quick survey. It’ll take only a few minutes and we are SO grateful for your time and feedback. Thanks!

Question: Since global warming is affecting the polar bears, how can we help them to not go extinct?
– Tess S. (Grade 6)
Answer: We can all contribute to reducing climate change, and therefore help polar bears and other endangered species, by reducing the amount of polluting gas emissions from burning fossil fuels, such as coal and oil.
Question: Which animal group makes up the largest percentage of the world’s organisms?
– Shelly P. (Grade 9)
Answer: In terms of numbers of species, insects certainly represent the largest percentage of the world’s organisms and in numbers of individuals, the answer may be ants. There are 14,000 known species of ants and they all form ant colonies.
Question: Is bottled water bad for us?
– Molly M. (Grade 5)
Answer: The water inside bottled water is safe to drink but buying lots of water that’s in plastic bottles is NOT great for the planet. The real problem is producing and throwing away all that plastic.
