Bezos Earth Fund
The Bezos Earth Fund is a philanthropic organization that was created by a commitment of $10 billion from Jeff Bezos to be disbursed as grants within the current decade. The Fund is committed to fighting climate change and protecting nature.
Nature Solutions is one of the Fund's funding areas. The Bezos Earth Fund preserves what remains and restores what have been lost. The Fund Initiatives that protect, restore, and sustainably manage ecosystems have a crucial role to play in protecting biodiversity, mitigating and adapting to climate change, and sustaining and improving lives. The human footprint has grown in the past century; today less than 30% of the planet remains wild and a million species could face extinction. Nature solutions could provide about one-third of the mitigation needed by 2030 to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, while also improving the resilience of ecosystems to climate and strengthening communities and livelihoods that depend on forests, fisheries, and other ecosystems. The Earth Fund will advance nature solutions in critical ecosystems to safeguard the health of our planet and the wellbeing of people around the world.
