Op-Ed: Hansjörg Wyss talks about why he's donating $1 billion to save the environment

A Swiss philanthropist's foundation will donate $1 billion to conserve the planet's land and oceans in an effort to expand the availability of clean air and drinking water.

Hansjörg Wyss, a billionaire and conservationist, wrote Wednesday in a New York Times op-ed that he will donate the money over the next 10 years through his Wyss Foundation. Lands and waters are best conserved when they become public national parks, wildlife refuges, or marine reserves, Wyss wrote. He aims to help conserve 30% of the Earth in a natural state by 2030.
