New Year, New Me is a common saying at the beginning of every year. However, something that will not change in the New Year is the world’s need to combat climate change. Over the last few years, some great work has been done by many organizations and states, though there is always more to do.
Several states passed legislation that increased protections for the environment. Emissions from carbon dioxide in 2021 reduced by 5.4%. More funds are being spent on renewable energy research and production, and a wildlife corridor was created in Florida. The corridor will protect the habitats of Florida’s wildlife.
Environmental conservation which helps to combat climate change made its way into action as well. Several animals that had reached endangered status made a comeback, and 100 counties pledged to protect at least 30% of their land and marine spaces by 2030.
However, the only way to continue all this good work and progress is to make sure there is adequate funding. So much of the work that key organizations and nonprofits do is fueled by donations and grants. This is why in 2022, it’s more important than ever to fund environmental conservation as well as other initiatives that work to fight climate change and protect our planet. Today, GrantWatch.com is sharing several grants to bolster resilience and environmental conservation and fight climate change.
