Each and every year it is important to secure funding for our critical work to protect endangered marine wildlife and ecosystems. The phrase “now, more than ever” is often said with respect to wildlife conservation due to amplified anthropogenic, or human-caused, threats without proportional conservation strategies.
This year, however, the phrase took on a whole new meaning — as we pivoted quickly to remote-based operations and faced multiple delays in programs and policy due to the COVID-19 pandemic — in the midst of ever-increasing environmental regulatory rollbacks and hostility towards conservation efforts.
We are — like so many individuals, businesses and organizations in this country — feeling the impact of loss of reduced funds. So are the animals that we’re committed to protect.
The good news is there are 3 easy ways you can protect our blue-green planet this Giving Tuesday:
1) Donate to Turtle Island Restoration Network and your gift will be doubled.
Generosity is an antidote to isolation, fear, and division. All donations will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $30,000 this giving season by a longtime supporter! Double your gift today.
2) Adopt a Redwood Tree to help fight climate change.
Give a gift or honor a loved one, and help us plant trees this winter! Coast redwood trees sequester more carbon per hectare than any other tree. Adopt a Redwood Tree today.
3) Show your support for marine conservation through our online store.
Looking for holiday gifts? Our store has t-shirts, hats, and totes for all your sea turtle, shark, and salmon-loving family and friends. Plus our reusable straws and stickers make perfect stocking stuffers! Shop to support today.
Turtle Island Restoration Network is a small organization with an incredible impact — but we can’t stop sea turtles from drowning in nets or salmon habitat from disappearing without your generous support.
Gifts from individuals are the lifeblood of our work. Give today and make an impact for the future of our oceans and watersheds. We hope you’ll show your Giving Tuesday support!
