Google Doodle on Earth Day

On April 22, Google doodle observed the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with an illustrated illustration and honored "our world and one of the tiny, yet important species, the bee." The unique doodle shows a bee flying above nature's green surroundings. Google doodle today also includes an immersive game as well, so you can enjoy it by clicking on the graphic icon. The doodle starts with an introduction in the background of a great animation about pollination when you press on the play tab.

"Pollination by bees makes two-thirds of our world's crops possible as well as 85 percent of the world's flowering plants," it says. Bees are instrumental in the process of pollination or transferring pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma. The introduction is followed by the game wherein the user can make bees pollinate flowers by moving the mouse. Facts about bees are also displayed in between the game.

The Google doodle art was led by Gerben Steenks, with engineering by Jacob Howcroft and Stephanie Gu. "We hope people understand the importance of bees to the earth and to humanity. For those who want to take action, anyone can have a positive impact by growing pollen-producing plants," the doodle team said. Earth Day is celebrated annually across the world on April 22 to support environmental protection.
