Jeff Bezos Says Traveling to Space Changed How He Thinks About Nature

By Annie Palmer

Jeff Bezos on Monday pledged to give away $1 billion in grants this year with a focus on conservation efforts.

The pledge comes through the Bezos Earth Fund, which the Amazon founder and chairman started in 2020 to execute his $10 billion commitment to fight climate change. The Bezos Earth Fund has pledged to donate about $1 billion a year to activists, scientists and other groups working to address the globe’s climate crisis, with a goal of spending $10 billion by 2030.
