United Nations Foundation

The United Nations Foundation was created in 1997 to channel a $1 billion gift to the UN from Ted Turner, the founder of CNN. The Foundation’s mission is to fund activities that support the charter of the UN; biodiversity is one of its environmental priority areas. Most of the Foundation’s work in this field concentrates on protecting world heritage sites and coral reefs. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_WEBSITE}}
