Tech giant Google, on Friday, dedicated a doodle on the occasion of Earth Day.

Earth Day, which is observed annually on 22 April since the late 1960s, is “the one day that transcends culture, language, and tradition,” Google said, explaining the significance of its series of Google doodles celebrating our planet.

The doodle depicts specific animals in different biomes each time one visits the page-a polar bear in the tundra, an elephant in the grasslands, a tortoise in the desert, a red fox in the forest and an octopus in the ocean.

Sophie Diao, the artist who sketched the doodles said in blog post:

The vastness of the Earth’s diversity makes it an intimidating topic, but in the end I chose to highlight the Earth’s five major biomes. On a day like this, we remember and celebrate our home in this great and stunning ecosystem.
