The year 2020 will forever be known in a negative light. A lot happened and a lot of it was just plain awful. Most news stories were negative, scary, and depressing. Can you even think of a good thing that happened in 2020? This graphic is here to help! It shows 42 really great things that actually happened in the year 2020 that you probably didn't even hear about. From simple things like people spending more time outside enjoying outdoor recreation to out-of-this-world stuff like scientists finding water on the moon! Many positive events that happened in 2020 were overshadowed by all the covid and politics banter so many people didn't get to hear about the enormous coral reef taller than the Empire State Building being discovered or that 48 species of birds and mammals being saved from extinction.
How about a little good news for our oceans? This graphic includes a blip about the Ocean Voyages Institute setting a record for the largest single haul of plastic removed from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Let's all b hope more great news like this continues for 2021 and beyond!
