Protecting the Environment

Protecting the Environment Header Image

World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5 every year, and is the United Nations' main vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of the environment. This year, the theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States, and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa – and now, a global disease pandemic – demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life, in which they exist.

With rapid and transformative change, we can avoid these risks to protect human livelihood and health, as well as economies and ecosystems across the world. Consider making a donation to one of these highly-rated organizations today.
