    There are many different kinds of animals found almost everywhere on Earth.

    (2)There are many different kinds of animals found on Earth.

    There are many different kinds of animals found in almost every part of the Earth/planet/globe.



    (2) is the one to use, both grammatically and factually.
    The other two are factually incorrect.
