Giving Spotlight

An Enduring Partnership

Since 2003, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has generously supported the Woodwell Climate Research Center. We are grateful for their dedication, which has enabled Woodwell Climate to bring our science to global impact from the Amazon to the Arctic.

Our partnership began with Woodwell Climate’s work to better understand the ecology of the Amazon, its vulnerability to fire, and the importance of protecting the forest. The Moore Foundation supported our studies of the short- and long-term impacts of land use changes linked to deforestation. Through collaboration with other key partners, that science is used to inform policy to help end deforestation. As a result of our research, the Moore Foundation has been better equipped to prioritize their work on protected areas in Brazil.

Most recently, the Moore Foundation awarded Woodwell Climate a grant to understand the impacts of thawing permafrost in the Arctic. We are developing a comprehensive monitoring and projection system for carbon emissions from Arctic permafrost and wildfire. With other partners, we will link our Arctic science to regional and global policy at the highest levels.

I have had the pleasure of working with Woodwell Climate for over a decade. The science they produced for the Amazon-Andes initiative has been invaluable in helping the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation conserve critical protected areas in the Amazon. We view Woodwell Climate as leaders in helping end deforestation in the Amazon. Avecita Chicchón, Ph.D. - Program Director, Andes-Amazon for the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
