The Bezos Earth Fund announces $50 million investment

The Bezos Earth Fund was established in 2020 with a $10 billion commitment to be dispersed in grants dedicated to fighting climate change and protecting wildlife. In support of marine protected areas in the tropical pacific, these $50 million grants will support a 30×30 initiative aimed at protecting 30% of the earth’s land and sea by 2030. 

$30 million of these grants will support organizations in Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Panama to create a network of marine protected areas stretching over 193,000 square miles. Alongside members of the Connect to Protect Eastern Tropical Pacific Coalition, the grants will allow members to work with governments, local communities, organizations, and scientists to establish new structures directed at protecting wildlife. The remaining $20 million grant to the National Geographic Society’s Pristine Seas will be directed toward helping their mission to protect 30% of the ocean by 2030.
