photo_library One of the two incredible organizations that #AmericasFoodFund will directly support is @FeedingAmerica, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, which serves more than 40 million Americans annually through their network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs. 
100% of donations to America’s Food Fund will go to @FeedingAmerica and @WCKitchen. If you are able to, please join me in supporting their efforts: GoFundMe.com/AmericasFoodFund (see link in bio)

Yesterday, we announced the launch of #AmericasFoodFund, a commitment to ensure that all Americans have reliable access to food, and support those most affected by this crisis. Thank you to everyone who has already supported. 
America’s Food Fund supports two incredible organizations, @FeedingAmerica and @WCKitchen, who are on the front lines of this rapid-response effort. 
They face new challenges every day, including responding to the vast number of people impacted who are in need of food, supply-chain disruptions, and access to product, along with the challenge of distributing meals in ways that maintain the health and safety of all involved.

play_circle_filled Thank you for your incredible generosity, Oprah. #Repost @Oprah: #OprahTalks with America’s Food Fund: @chefjoseandres and Claire Babineaux-Fontenot have teamed up with @leonardodicaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs and @Apple to launch America’s Food Fund to help feed local communities. I was struck by the work these organizations are doing and while everyone’s priority right now is to stay safer at home, I know there are many of us looking for ways to help. I believe that America’s Food Fund will be a powerful way to make a difference for our neighbors in need and am committing $1 million to this fund to support those facing food insecurity. I am donating $10 million overall to help Americans during this pandemic in cities across the country and in areas where I grew up.

In the face of this crisis, organizations like World Central Kitchen and Feeding America have inspired us all with their unwavering commitment to feed the most vulnerable people in need. I thank them for their tireless work on the frontlines, they deserve all of our support.

Today, along with Laurene Powell Jobs, @Apple and the @fordfoundation, we helped launch America’s Food Fund. The Fund is designed to help our most vulnerable, including children who rely on school lunch programs, low-income families, the elderly, and individuals facing job disruptions.

100% of donations will go to @FeedingAmerica and @WCKitchen. We know that asking for monetary donations is challenging for many people right now, but if you are able, please join me in donating at: GoFundMe.com/AmericasFoodFund (see link in bio). #AmericasFoodFund #Coronavirus #FeedingAmerica #ChefsforAmerica #WorldCentralKitchen

When it comes to conserving the world’s oceans, we have work to do, a new study co-authored by @TheWCS in the journal One Earth says. 🌊🐢 According to the study, a full one-third of all marine species have less than 10% of their range protected. In addition, conserving a portion of habitat for all marine species would require an additional 3.2 million sq. miles of new conservation areas or an area about the size of Brazil. “The international community needs to rapidly increase the scale of marine conservation efforts if we are to maintain the health of our oceans,” said lead author Dr. Kendall Jones of WCS’s Conservation Solutions Program.

photo_library @presidenciaperu @martinvizcarraperu, creating the Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area will be your powerful legacy and secure the future of the Peru’s ocean abundance for generations to come. 
Right now, less than 0.5% of Peru’s maritime territory is under legal protection, far from the 10% goal to which the government committed to achieve by this year. More than 1,000 species can be found in the Nazca Ridge, including blue whales, humpback whales, orcas, marine turtles, sharks and tuna. It is also home to deep-sea species such as cold-water corals and cod. By protecting this area, we can help maintain its abundance for generations to come and in turn, ensure neighboring fisheries thrive. 
Join @Oceana @oceana_peru in urging Peru’s President Vizcarra to create the Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area and have his action celebrated at the UN Ocean Conference in June. Visit OCEANA.ORG/NazcaNow. #NazcaNow #NascaYa #30x30

There are less than 500 Hirola in the world and those that are left are understandably skittish. Hirola are among the most elusive and least known antelopes in the world, which makes this photo by @global_wildlife_conservation’s @robindmoore especially rare.

Their loss would represent the first extinction of a mammalian genus on mainland Africa in modern human history. @tsavotrust is among those groups making sure that this doesn’t happen on our watch by protecting and restoring the Hirola throughout its range in Kenya, including Tsavo East National Park, where this image was recently taken. #ExtinctionEndsHere #WildlifePhotography #ConservationOptimism #WildlifeConservation #EndExtinction #stopextinction

@gretathunberg made an appearance at the march in Bristol, UK. She addressed a crowd of about 25,000 people and praised the way climate activists in the city had managed to delay plans for a new airport.

Protests were staged in other parts of the world, from Australia to Nigeria. Swipe right for highlights.

Scientists are warning that the Great Barrier Reef could be heading for major coral bleaching. From The @Guardian: If high ocean temperatures in the region do not drop in the next two weeks, the reef is set for a third major coral bleaching outbreak in the space of five years. “We are down to the wire,” said Prof Terry Hughes, director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University.

Coral bleaching is a stress reaction caused when corals spend long periods in warmer than average water. Rising ocean temperatures are caused by increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

In August 2019, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority downgraded the reef’s longterm outlook from “poor” to “very poor” for the first time.

From the @UNEP: An invasive species of seaweed blighting tourist beaches in Mexico 🇲🇽 has become more aggressive due to #climatechange. The Sargassum weed is spreading, filling coastal waters and blocking sunlight essential to the growth of indigenous sea grasses and other plants. There is some good news though. Efforts are underway to hold back its advance and protect local ecosystems. #biodiversity2020 📷: @UNDP Mexico
