Changing worlds with photography.
Azure Earth in April, Panama - Photographer James Beck
Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise 100% of project-related costs since 2014!
Who are we helping?
Azuero Earth are an organisation that are committed to protecting the planet's eco systems and dedicated to overcoming the challenges of global warming. The organisation operate in the Azuero peninsula of Panama, Central America. The region is extremely vulnerable due to the drastic differences in rainfall between seasons, caused largely by climate change.
Azuero Earth is a “living laboratory” that aims to help the local community make sustainable aggricultural choices through science and fieldwork. With this local fieldwork, Azuero Earth are working towards building successful land use models that can then be replicated and scaled up in vulnerable areas worldwide.
Why am I passionate about this project?
Climate change is a man made issue which has a global impact. My aim is to raise awareness of the global effects of climate change which people may not see in their every day life, in their local area, but can be impacting communities on the other side of the planet.
How can I help the cause?
By documenting the work Azuero Earth do and focusing on the impact of climate change, I will do everything I can to assist in raising awareness of these challenges. With the Trump administration's stance on climate change, it is perhaps as important as ever to argue the case of its validity and I feel photography can play a substantial role in helping people see the effects of global warming.
Any support, big or small, will help.
