The U.S. – China Environmental Education Foundation (UCEEF) has long been dedicated to environmental conservation, frequently extending our support through donations to communities in need. This commitment is not just about financial contributions, but also about actively participating in environmental and ecological preservation efforts.
In a recent display of this commitment, UCEEF stepped forward to aid a community in the Los Angeles area, where a lake, an essential site for bird migration, was at risk. Due to the developers planning, there were plans to fill in the lake. However, local residents, recognizing the environmental significance and the crucial role it plays in bird migration, sought to challenge this decision legally. Upon learning about this situation, UCEEF, in 2022 and 2023, generously donated the legal fees necessary to support this cause.
While the specifics of the lawsuit and the lake's name remain confidential due to ongoing legal proceedings, UCEEF remains closely engaged with the situation. The foundation has pledged to monitor the case closely and to continue providing support as needed. This action by UCEEF underlines our unwavering dedication to environmental protection and our willingness to take significant steps to safeguard natural habitats and communities.
