Shall we start with the experts? National Geographic shared a ton of fantastic content across Twitter and Instagram today, but this IGTV promo for the show, Hostile Planet, is a standout. Hint: Watch it on mobile. Having these clips take over your vertical screen is the only way to go.
Meanwhile, our friends over at the National Aquarium celebrated with a photo of something they do best: releasing rehabilitated sea turtles back into the wild.
There’s no better way to honor #EarthDay than by celebrating the return of rescue turtles to their ocean home!
Last week, National Aquarium Animal Rescue released seven sea turtles back to the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida.

Not to be outdone (this team crushes it with social media, as you can see from the #CuteAnimalTweetOff), the Los Angeles Zoo promoted one of their awesome green initiatives, the ECO-CELL bin. Did you know that recycling your cell phone could help protect endangered species?
Happy #EarthDay! Stop by the Zoo and donate your old cell phone at our ECO-CELL bin. When possible, the phones are refurbished and distributed to conservation organizations. When the phones can’t be fixed, the parts are recycled responsibly. To learn more: https://t.co/ZBvlgm4EcF pic.twitter.com/brOXPTdpR8
