Proud to support the work of over 100 organizations at home and abroad. These grantees are active on the ground, protecting our oceans, forests and endangered species for future generations – and tackling the urgent, existential challenges of climate change.
#Regram #RG @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn: “This round of grants comes at a critical time. With a lack of political leadership, and continued evidence that climate change is growing worse with record-breaking heat waves and storms, we believe we need to do as much as we can now, before it’s too late. ” – LDF CEO, Terry Tamminen.

At LDF, we’re so proud of the incredible work from our grantees that continue to fight for our planet. Click the link in our bio to learn more about their work.

#Regram #RG @mattiasklumofficial: Early morning at the glacial lake Jökulsárlón on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park. This lake quite recently became the largest on Iceland since glacial retreat extended its boundaries. I have many favourite places.. Iceland is definitely one of them. #jökulsárlón #vatnajökull #landscape #photography #fineart #climate #mattiasklum #klum #photographer @mattiasklumofficial @natgeo @alexandrovklumofficial @irisalexandrov

#Regram #RG @greenpeace: A group of Indigenous Secwepemc people from Canada are building tiny houses in the path of the massive Kinder Morgan tar sands oil pipeline’s planned route through their territory. The house is a symbol of the home they are fighting to protect, creating hope and community in the face of destruction.

#Regram #RG @voxdotcom: How do we talk about climate change in the wake of #HurricaneHarvey? Plenty of pieces have been written about it in the past few days, but as Vox’s energy and climate writer David Roberts puts it, they aren’t saying enough.
.
Here are a few crucial points about the impact of global warming on the storm — most importantly, it’s not fair to say climate change *caused* it, but it certainly made it worse. Click the link in our bio for five more key facts to help you contribute to the conversation. #climatechange #science

#Regram #RG @unitedway:
#Harvey continues to wreak havoc along the Gulf Coast. Our highest priorities are safety, shelter and basic needs for those who are most impacted by the storm. Once communities are stabilized, United Way will focus on long-term recovery efforts, which will be unprecedented in scope because of the number of people impacted. You can help.

#Regram #RG @nrdc_org: Trump’s Wall = Wildlife Extinction?
As President Trump has now threatened a government shutdown if he doesn’t get his border wall, here’s yet another reason to oppose it: He plans to start building it in a wildlife refuge, placing ocelots at risk of extinction while also threatening monarch butterflies, Sonoran pronghorns, pygmy owls, and Mexican gray wolves, among other wildlife.

We must protect our planet. #Regram #RG @raulguterres: We, Brazilians, must understand that we hold the biggest treasure on this planet in our country: the Amazon. A treasure that maintain us all alive. Enough of your selfishness, omission, ignorance. If it doesn't matter to you, it matters to the whole planet and the future of life on Earth. Please! Wake up! 🌳

#Regram #RG @paulhiltonphoto:

Orphaned Sumatran elephants, rarely make it to adulthood. Help us prevent human - elephant conflict. We have ordered two collars from the United States, and we'll be fitting them on two different herds of elephants. Allowing us to understand the herds movements and helping is with the science. With 6 GPS download locations a day, this will allow our Ranger patrol to be in a place to prevent any human elephant conflicts from happening. But we still need to raise funds to get more elephant patrol units into the field. Help us directly with a contribution to our Forest & Elephant patrols! Link in bio :) right now.

@LeonardoDiCaprioFdn partners @100isNow went to Highland Park, Michigan to honor five #cleanenergy leaders with solar-powered streetlights. After one thousand streetlights were taken away from their city, residents were left in the dark. Now, instead of energy from a grid, city streetlights are powered by the sun, thanks to @Soulardarity. The 100% campaign is raising money on their behalf to keep building. Consider supporting today.

#Regram #RG @nrdc_org: For archaeologist Angel Peña and his community, the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument is a local treasure with something for everyone, whether it’s family trips, geological discoveries, or off-roading. As Trump and his administration are planning to weaken, shrink, or eliminate dozens of America’s national monuments like this one, NRDC and Next 100 Coalition have teamed up to make sure this doesn’t happen.

#Regram #RG @oceana: A southern resident killer whale calf swims beside its mother through the Haro Strait. Unfortunately, sightings of these endangered marine species are becoming increasingly rare. A recent study in the journal PLOS ONE found that as high as 69 percent of Southern Resident killer whale pregnancies end in failure. What's to blame? The truth is that humans are wiping out most of the whale's food supply. Visit OCEANA.org/blog to learn how these endangered whales are careening towards extinction, and why scientists believe they might have found a solution that offers a glimmer of hope. 📷: Monika Wieland Shields

If the parks and reserves of Africa’s savannas were properly resourced and effectively managed, we could have 3-4 times the number of lions we have today. Today on #WorldLionDay, @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @WildNetOrg are launching a powerful coalition for #lionconservation--the @LionRecovery Fund. Find out more at lionrecoveryfund.org.

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photo by @enricsala | This lemonpeel angelfish finds refuge in Kingman Reef, a remote coral atoll that is part of the US Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument - for now. On April 26, 2017, an Executive Order was signed that threatens to carve up – or even abolish – dozens of National Monuments and Marine Sanctuaries across the nation. These protected areas are gifts from nature that belong to all of us, now and for future generations. If you want our monuments and marine sanctuaries to be kept as they are, please let the Department of Commerce know before August 15, using the link on my profile @enricsala

#Regram #RG @sea_legacy: Overnight, a thin layer of ice forms on the surface of the sea surrounding Spitsbergen, Norway. By end of day, the ice will melt. It seemed like a pretty good ice year but in reality, it was thin and will soon disappear. What we saw very little of was multi-year ice. That is ice that lasts for many years and is crucial to all the species in this ecosystem. ⠀

#Regram #RG @sierraclub: Make no mistake: Trump's ties to the oil and gas industry, his denial of climate change, and his utter disregard for science pose a very serious threat. As the nation's leader in grassroots environmental litigation, we will bring legal action at every turn.

Hear from Pat, director of our Environmental Law Program (ELP), about the ELP's three-part strategy to #resist Trump and save our climate.

#Regram #RG @conservationorg: Every 15 minutes, an elephant is killed for its ivory — and this cruel, gruesome practice could drive the species to extinction within a generation. The Sarara Initiative, a model of sustainable community-based conservation, is working toward the security for elephants and people.
