We're in the midst of a shelter-in-place order here in the San Francisco Bay Area because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its drastic effects on us all.
The months ahead — and maybe longer — are going to be difficult here and around the world. But we can get through this, and Earth Island will continue its efforts to press for the protection of public health, for oceans free of plastic pollution, for the preservation of wild places and animal habitats, and for a sustainable environment. Earth Island’s programs and the 80 projects it supports are a testament to what can be done when we all pull together and support one another.
We are working remotely, but we are not letting it interrupt our critical efforts. We will keep you posted. Please follow us on social media for updates. In the meantime, the Earth Island family sends you strength and support in the days and months to come.
Earth Island Institute
Earth Island is the place to go if you have a great idea to protect the Earth and need a place to make it happen. We provide comprehensive fiscal sponsorship and project support to a vibrant network of activists and social entrepreneurs. In the tradition of our founder David Brower, we recognize and support the next generation of young leaders, and inspire people to get involved and take action.Learn more
We've built a network of more than 75 activist projects in the US and around the world. Our New Leaders Initiative mentors young people and sponsors the annual Brower Youth Awards to recognize tomorrow's environmental leaders. We publish the award-winning Earth Island Journal to inspire and educate. And our new Earth Island Advocates program utilizes legal strategies to stand up for wild places, wildlife, and our hard-won environmental protection laws.Learn more
We do this work because we revere the miracle of the natural world, its beauty and wholeness. And we believe that reversing the perilous environmental course we are on requires all of us to step up, connect, and take action.Learn more
