Jeff Bezos donates 1 billion to nature via ‘Bezos Earth Fund’

Nature is our life support system and it’s fragile,” Bezos said Monday at an event in New York City. “I was reminded of this just this July when I went into space with Blue Origin. I’d heard that seeing the Earth from space changes one’s point of view of the world, but I was not prepared for just how much that would be true.”

Earlier this month, the fund said it would give away $203.7 million by the end of the year to organizations advancing climate justice, among other causes. That’s after it awarded $791 million in grants last year to 16 organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Nature Conservancy.
