Dear Mrs. Desai,
You play a critical role in helping The Nature Conservancy protect the most diverse and ecologically important places around the world.
As you can see at nature.org, we’re making tangible progress and significant strides for our natural world.
But with two-thirds of Earth’s natural systems in decline, it is imperative we dramatically expand the scope and scale of conservation at the pace required to truly make an enduring impact. And protecting the world’s ecological diversity doesn’t stop at our shores.
That’s why on Thursday, April 22, which is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, we plan to showcase the Conservancy’s innovative solutions for marine conservation.
Leading up to Earth Day, we’ll share three actions you can take to not only make a difference locally, but also around the world — and especially deep in our oceans.
The first action, which we hope you’ll share with your friends and family, is to choose reusable shopping bags instead of plastic bags.
You don’t think this small step can make a big difference in the health of our oceans? Then dive in for a firsthand account from Conservancy Caribbean program director, Phil Kramer, about why plastics are so damaging to the world’s oceans.
Over the coming weeks, we hope you’ll join in the celebration and explore simple actions you can take to help save oceans.
