Toyota joins Audubon in conservation corporate-NGO partnership
The Audubon Society, a US based environmental conservation group, received its largest grant ever in 2008, $20 million USD from Toyota, to fund conservation projects, train environmental leaders, and boost volunteerism. It’s a partnership the carmaker will use to engage its workers and business partners in order to promote conservation through the new TogetherGreen program. Up to 200 future green leaders could receive training to combat tomorrow’s conservation challenges, and dozens of projects each year will receive funding to conserve water, land or energy.
Ravenswood Media was chosen by Audubon to produce a short video on the prairie restoration at the Bartel Grasslands. With a grant from Toyota, Audubon has created a program that connects people to nature through conservation projects.
