Wherever you are in the world there's something you can do. Research local land trusts or land management organizations to see if they need help. You can help maintain woodlands, eradicate invasive species, and monitor deforestation. Even just going for a hike on popular trails to collect rubbish can stop wildlife dying from eating plastic. Walking along any stretch of beach you'll find plenty of trash, and stop it going out to join the [Great Pacific Garbage Patch](https://www.nationalgeographic.org/encyclopedia/great-pacific-garbage-patch/) or [North Atlantic Garbage Patch](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Atlantic_garbage_patch).
Research your local "Gleaners" network, to go to farms and pick the "second harvest" (i.e slightly bruised but edible food) to reduce food waste and help bolster food banks.
You don't need to fly to the Seychelles for a week of volunteering to pick up litter, those "Go Abroad" programs just encourage flying around and that ruins the impact you're having on the world.
You don't need to fly to the Seychelles for a week of volunteering to pick up litter, you can do that anywhere, on a hike, at the beach, or by a lake. Similarly you can research your local "Gleaners" network. Gleaners go to farms and pick the "second harvest" (i.e slightly bruised but edible food) to reduce food waste and help bolster food banks.
Here are a few more specific ideas.

Right now, while our planet speeds toward the brink of the climate crisis,
Microsoft is putting its foot on the accelerator. As oil and gas profits
continue to fall, giant oil corporations have turned to cloud computing and
artificial intelligence (AI) to answer their problems. Microsoft promises
companies like ExxonMobil that its analytical tools and other AI
technologies will help them discover and pump even more oil at a lower cost.
This Greenpeace petition will let Microsoft know this is not acceptable.
