An Earth Day Like No Other

Today, we observe Mother Earth on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day during a global pandemic. No Earth Day has been more poignant in exposing the extreme impact of human activity on our planetary ecosystem. The skies of Mumbai have never been so clear. Wildlife are emerging out of their hiding places and roaming wider within our national parks and city streets. CO2 emissions may drop lower than in any previous crisis or period of war. 

While the pandemic has given us a glimpse of a cleaner wilder planet, this change is not permanent. Forests and wildlife will still need protecting, and climate change will not be a thing of the past. So we are making plans to double down on our efforts to expand our conservation model to protect more endangered wild places in a post COVID world.

While we are in the midst of this crisis, Wildlife Works, is observing national shelter guidelines and working with our communities to help prevent the spread of Covid19 in their villages. All non essential workers employed by Wildlife Works are now sheltering at home with full pay. In Kenya, we have installed hand washing stations across all of our community villages where water is scarce. Additionally, we are making masks at our eco factory for the local community. 
Where we land at the end of all of this is still unknown. But today, we honor Mother Earth and all that she's given us and continue to steadfastly protect her and her gifts. 

You can help too by buying Forest Protection Credits that go directly to our communities.
