Provide Drought Relief to the People of the Marshall Islands
Posted by Shark Defenders
Currently a state of emergency has been called for the Northern Atolls of the Republic of Marshall Islands, in response to a long drought bringing about a critical shortage of water. This is a direct impact of climate change in the Pacific that is happening now. There are 15 northern islands experiencing real threats of increased droughts, fresh water shortages, sanitation problems, food security, and increased salinity of fresh water lenses. It is a clear and present danger.
PLEASE MAKE A DONATION
Women United Together in the Marshall Islands is organizing a cash donation drive to purchase gallons of water, canned goods, and powdered milk. Shark Defenders will send funds from this online drive to WUTMI so that they can purchase the goods.
The Marshall Islands are home to one of the world's largest shark sanctuaries. Our friends there are suffering and they need our help.
