August’s Charity: Amazon Watch
Aug 27, 2016
August’s charity of the month is supporting Amazon Watch, a cause that couldn’t be much further away from my home in the north of England.
Earlier this year there was a large-scale oil spill in the Amazon. Scientific American writes “The recent leak of 3,000 barrels of oil in Peru’s Amazon jungle will cause incalculable damage, according to scientists”.
Considering the scale of the incident it received very little coverage in the British press, and I only happened to come across the news via a shared social media post. If you’d like to donate to Amazon Watch and help the charity continue it’s work simply visit their website.
