Google Doodles Rachel Louise Carson's 107th Birthday

Doodle, Google, Rachel Louise Carson, Biologist, Conservationist,
Today's Google Doodle celebrates the 107th birthday of Rachel Louise Carson, an American marine biologist and conservationist.

The blue illustration shows Carson surrounded by a variety of sea creatures and birds, highlighting her love for nature.

Clicking on the image allows you to discover her life and legacy.

Born in Pennsylvania in 1907, she was originally an aquatic biologist before she became a full-time nature writer in the 1950s.

Her most notable books include The Edge of the Sea, Silent Spring and The Sea Around Us, the latter of which won her a U.S National Book Award.

Carson's achievements in marine biology and ecology have led to her work being credited with advancing the global environmental movement, a term which deals with addressing environmental issues.

Her research in Silent Spring also led to a nationwide ban of pesticide DDT, a chemical which she thought to be environmentally negative.

She died of a heart attack in 1964, aged 56 in Maryland.
