March 30, 2022

Ellie Goulding has become an ambassador for the WWF Wildlife Charity and in her new role wants to "talk about our great planet".

The British singer, a dedicated environmental activist, is very proud to have become an official ambassador of the organization and states that she wants to deal with the "climate crisis and the destruction of nature".

"I'm very happy to be part of the WWF as an ambassador because I'm passionate about talking about our great planet," said Ellie Goulding.

"I know that the climate crisis and the destruction of nature can seem invincible at times, but I promise you that when millions of people join forces and demand change, then the data start to change," he said.

"One thing we know is that every second counts and every second we have to fight for change. "I want to participate in this," he continued.

Ellie Goulding's accession to the WWF coincided with the 15th annual Earth Hour, the organization's largest global environmental action, which urges people to turn off their lights for 60 minutes on Saturday, March 26th.

Tanya Steele, WWF's Managing Director for the United Kingdom, added: "We are delighted to welcome Ellie as Ambassador at such a critical time. She is an incredible supporter and will help us promote our work and raise awareness of the need to take action on climate change. "

"Earth Hour reminds us that when millions of people come together, small actions can make a big difference," he said.

"When we make changes in our own lives to reduce our impact on the planet, we inspire those around us to do the same and, together, we are a powerful global movement that governments and businesses can not ignore," he explained.

Ellie Goulding has a long-standing relationship with the WWF and has previously visited Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland with climatologists to monitor first-hand the rapid ice loss.

She has also been the UN Global Environment Ambassador since 2017.

The 35-year-old singer had co-signed in 2019 with actor James Norton, wildlife expert Steve Backshall a letter to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, calling on him to cut off greenhouse gas emissions.

The letter urged the British Prime Minister to make more efforts to help people switch to electric cars, as well as to plant more trees and make homes more climate-friendly with cleaner heating systems.

Ellie Goulding was also among those attending the 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26), which took place in Glasgow, Scotland in November.
