The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) is an international campaigning organisation committed to investigating and exposing environmental crime.
Since 1984, EIA has used pioneering investigative techniques all over the world to expose the impact of environmental crime and to seek lasting solutions - thanks to our supporters help.
EIA's work takes place within the following core campaign areas:
Species in Peril
EIA's Species in Peril programme focuses on endangered species that are threatened with extinction due to the devastating impact of illegal trade in body parts, over-hunting and the destruction of natural habitat. Our focus is currently on the following areas: Tigers, Elephants, Cetaceans and Orangutans.
Forests for the World
The Forests for the World programme focuses on the damaging effect deforestation and illegal logging activities have on the world's forests and the species that inhabit them. The campaign also highlights the detrimental effect deforestation has on the quality of our environment.
EIA's Global Environment programme highlights threats to the shared environment of man and wildlife with particular emphasis on exposing the illegal trade in Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS).
Cubrick2001 - Angelino T. commented on EIA releases footage of indigenous forest threatened by palm oil firm
I cannot but think that 'civilized western world' cannot comprehend that forrests and land are sacred to indigenous people. To us, all is just profit. Nothing is sacred, not even lives. Nothing is alive, not even us.
