About Earth Island Institute

Earth Island Institute was founded in San Francisco, USA in 1982 by well-known American environmentalist David Brower. Brower, together with other visionary and dedicated environmental activists created a nimble, streamlined organization to support the work of bold individuals with big ideas on how to restore, preserve and nurture the environment. Earth Island grows environmental leadership through education and activism. Our projects, publications, and initiatives support the biological and cultural diversity that sustain the environment.
