I, Peter Makwanya, I am an environmental advocate and communicator resident in Zimbabwe. I fight for environmental justice. I would like to appeal to the rich nations who are responsible for polluting the earth not to use language to manipulate poor nations while at the same time concealing their actions. I also appeal to poor countries, especially the developing world to take climate change seriously rather talk about it when they are receiving donations. If the developing countries are not serious about the fast changing environment then they are not being fair to their people who are highly vulnerable and ill- equipped to fight effects of climate change. Lastly, I would want to appeal to the rich and polluting nations to make climate change an environmental problem rather than a political one for their self-serving interests.

As someone who is deeply passionate about protecting the environment and the creatures that call it home, I am proud to say that I am a member of the Environmental Defense Fund. Their call to actions are always at the top of my list of concerns and they make it so easy with the click of a button to contribute to petitions and with donations.

The EDF is an amazing organization set to helping the environment stay a clean and healthy place but also busting the incorporations that work to make it a disastrous world. I fully support the EDF and recommend you do too.

Environmental Defense Incorporated (EDF) is one of the easiest ways to get involved in making a difference for our communities, oceans, wild life, environment and planet. Not only do they make it easy to send meaningful letters to those who can help make a difference with policy changes, but they make it super easy to donate to the causes you care about the most.
I always take a few minutes to get involved. Most of the time it takes less than five minutes to make your voice count. Get involved today!

This organization is a source of hope in what unfortuantely appears to be a dark hour for environmental protection sometimes. The men and women of Environmental Defense Incorporated labor tirelessly to help ensure the safety of our enviornment and in turn the safety of our survival as a race as well. They constantly remind lawmakers that the protection of hundreds of ecosystems is also what the signed up for when taking office. Support Environmental Defense Incorporated.

I am unable to send monetary contributions to EDF or anybody else, but I stand behind them in their work in any way I can, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in the environment, in wildlife, and in the well-being of our planet.

I support the EDF because it gives me an opportunity to support those who are fighting for our environment. Without organizations like EDF people like me would not have a way to stand against the big money interests who are determined to exploit the natural resources of our earth at the expense of complex ecosystems and the animals who live in them. Eventually it affects the standard of living of people as well, because the more we destroy the earth the more we threaten all life on the planet.
