The Everglades Foundation, an environmental group founded by Paul Tudor Jones, has launched a campaign for the Biden administration to commit $725 million in each year of Biden’s term to restore Florida’s national park. Previously, Jones, who is tied to several George Soros-funded groups, donated over $50,000 to the Biden Victory Fund, which is the joint fundraising committee that supported both the Democratic Party and the Biden campaign.

In the 30 second national advertisement titled “Everglades Restoration Fights Climate Change,” the group argues that “it’s Washington’s turn to help, with $725 million a year in matching dollars for Everglades restoration.” The group calls for the President to “finish the job.”

Currently, Shannon Estenoz, the former chief operating officer and vice president of policy for the Everglades Foundation is the principal deputy assistant secretary. She oversees the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service.

On the Foundation’s website, they express that their “renowned scientists are passionate seekers of the truth, dedicated to unearthing the facts and conducting practical analysis to help local, state, and national leaders make well-informed decisions.” This is done so “by coupling sound science with policy expertise.”

Jones faced criticism at the height of the #MeToo movement because of his close relationship to Harvey Weinstein. He was on the board of the Weinstein Company, and the New York Times publicized an email directed to Weinstein shortly after sexual assault allegations were made against Weinstein.

In the email, Jones tells Weinstein “I love you. Focus on the future as America loves a great comeback story… The good news is, this will go away sooner than you think and it will be forgotten!”
