Leonardo DiCaprio donó 5 millones de dólares para salvar la Amazonía

Una fundación ecológica respaldada por el actor Leonardo DiCaprio donó USD 5 millones de dólaresen ayuda para la selva tropical de la Amazonas, devastada por los recientes incendios forestales.

Earth Alliance, creada el mes pasado por DiCaprio y los filántropos Laurene Powell Jobs y Brian Seth, anunciaron este domingo el lanzamiento del Amazon Forest Fund en su sitio web.

DiCaprio informó que el dinero se destinará a las «comunidades indígenas y otros locales que trabajan para proteger la biodiversidad y la sostenibilidad de la vida en el Amazonas contra el fuego que actualmente está devastando la región«.

La alianza también busca donaciones para ayudar a reparar la selva tropical brasileña.

Recordemos que DiCaprio inició una campaña para restaurar y proteger el que muchos conocen como «el pulmón del mundo». A través de sus redes sociales, el actor animó a sus millones de seguidores de todo el mundo a que se unan en esta misión tan importante.

«El 100% de tu donación estará destinado a las personas que están trabajando sobre el terreno para proteger el Amazonas», dijo al actor.

De acuerdo a la publicación del intérprete, Earth Alliance tiene como objetivo ayudar a proteger la naturaleza de peligros como el que se está viviendo en el Amazonas.

#Regram #RG @chamiltonjames The real heroes of fires are of course the firefighters. In the Amazon they often work with nothing but machetes and leaf blowers and small tanks of fire suppressant. I worked with a troop of them in eastern Brazil back in 2017. It was tough hot and at times hopeless work. Some of them were Guajajara tribesmen who had dedicated their lives to protecting what was left of their ancestral forests – most had already been logged and burned. Some of them had been murdered for trying. It was brutal and tragic and we should all bow down to them for what they do – for so little money that they have to roll cigarettes with writing paper.

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January.⁣ ⁣ The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. ⁣ ⁣ The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do?⁣ ⁣ ✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. ⁣ ✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. ✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. ⁣ ✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains.⁣ Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation. ✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.⁣ ⁣ #RainforestAlliance #SaveTheAmazon #PrayForAmazonia #AmazonRainforest #ActOnClimate #ForestsResist #ClimateCrisis 📸: @mohsinkazmitakespictures / Windy.com
