Climate change is having a devastating impact on both land and sea animals.
The United Nations recently reported that at least 1 million species are at risk of extinction due to human activity. As sea levels rise and oceans become warmer, studies predict that the world’s oceans will likely lose one-sixth of their fish and other marine life by the end of the century if climate change continues on the current path. The Aileen Getty Foundation has supported several efforts to protect animals over the years. A few of those partnerships are highlighted below.
“Improving the lives of people, animals and the environment by honoring their connectedness to each other.”
The Jane Goodall Institute is building a better tomorrow through wildlife research, conservation and education.
“Preserving the environment and supporting communities in Africa.”
Africa Foundation (AF) identifies and funds projects in the communities surrounding wildlife conservation areas in Africa.
“Defending, conserving, and protecting the oceans.”
Sea Shepherd is committed to protecting the ocean, its ecosystems and species.
“Giving tigers in America another chance.”
There are more tigers in captivity in America than exist in the rest of the world.
