Jeff Bezos is focused on a new venture
Jeff Bezos not only wants to conquer space, he is concerned about the state of the Earth. The philanthropist announced the creation of the Bezos Land Fund worth $ 10 billion. A foundation dedicated to “exploring new ways to combat the devastating effects of climate change on our common planet”. So far, the details of the Bezos Land Foundation have been unclear. Now Bezos has presented a vision of the first years of the fund’s work – the first billion dollars will be spent on protecting the environment of the Andes, the Congo basin and the Pacific Ocean.
“Nature is our life support system, and it is really in a bad state. I was reminded of this in July of this year, when I flew into space on Blue Origin. I have heard that the view of the Earth from space changes your point of view of the world. But I was not prepared for how true this is, ” said Jeff Bezos. One of the goals of the Bezos Foundation is to protect 30%. The world’s oceans and land by the end of this decade. This is one of the assumptions developed jointly with the UN, which provides for a tenfold reduction in the rate of extinction of species on the planet.
