13 Dec THREATS TO LIFE ON EARTH
Aussie Ark is incredibly fortunate to have the support of many proud partners, including Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC). In just ten short years GWC have worked with partners in more than 50 countries worldwide and helped establish more than 30 new protected areas home to more than 150 endangered species and a staggering 20,000 species overall. Through strategic partnerships Global Wildlife Conservation continue to push the boundaries of cutting-edge science and technologies for conservation and achieve unprecedented economies of scale for maximum impact. The worlds current global crisis sparked further action from GWC, and in August 2019 Earth Alliance was created.
Launched in response to a growing climate crisis and staggering loss of biodiversity threatening the stability of life on Earth, the Alliance marks a shared commitment to addressing these intertwined threats. The Alliance convenes the communicating power of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) with the talent and capacities of Emerson Collective and Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC).
“Our planet is at a critical turning point, and we have an opportunity to transition our society to a sustainable one in harmony with – and in support of – all life on Earth” Board chair of GWC, Brian Sheth
Aussie Ark would like to congratulate Global Wildlife Conservation on the creation of Earth Alliance’s Amazon Forest Fund with an initial commitment of $5 million — and more than $1 million and counting in small donations to protect the Amazon.
“Global Wildlife Conservation has been a major supporter and advocate of Aussie Ark since the very beginning, they are a true champion of the environment and of our native wildlife. We congratulate our friends at Global Wildlife Conservation and Earth Alliance for their commitment to protect the Amazon.” Aussie Ark President, Tim Faulkner
