On Monday, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced a $443 million donation to organisations focused on climate justice and nature conservation.

In a press release, the Bezos Earth Fund said it had awarded 44 grants to climate organisations, including a $140 million donation to President Biden’s Justice40 initiative and a $51 million donation to support land restoration in the US and Africa.
