On Monday, Bezos revealed that his $10 Billion Bezos Earth Fund would provide the support to toward the conservation of nature in biodiversity hotspots such as the Congo Basin , the tropical Andes, and the Pacific Ocean. The money will help finance a goal to protect 30% of the world’s oceans and land by the end of the decade.

Bezos is one of the world’s richest men. Back in February he announced, via Instagram that he was donating $10B of his $200billion fortune to save the planet’s environment by 2030.

Grants from the $1billion pledge will begin being distributed this year, with priority being given to countries and regions that are committed to protecting nature. His announcement is the first of a three-part nature strategy for his environmental strategy that will also cover eco-system restoration and food system transformation.
