Earth Island Institute 1998 1999 Annual Report


Wilkinson, Robert C., Earth Island Journal


1998 * 1999 ANNUAL * REPORT

IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE to serve as President of Earth Island Institute through another inspiring and productive year. Looking back, it has been a year of great accomplishments.

Our Founder and Chair, David Brower, was honored with the Blue Planet Prize -- considered the most prestigious of environmental prizes. It is awarded to recipients whose achievements have contributed to the resolution of global environmental problems. David is often called "the most effective conservationist in the world today."

Earth Island Institute and its projects are now working in thirty-four countries around the world. We are making a huge impact, aiming for positive change in an environment that badly needs our help. The talented Earth Island volunteers and staff work tirelessly on a broad array of environmental initiatives for forest and marine mammal protection, global warming and sustainable energy strategies, the battle to prevent toxic pollution of the marine environment, cooperation and communication with indigenous communities around the world, and many other critical campaigns.

Even with the effective work of Earth Island Institute projects, we continue to face challenges. The Dolphin-Safe Tuna label, which Earth Island fought so hard to secure, is under attack. Our National Forests are still being damaged at taxpayer expense, our waters continue to be polluted, and indigenous people need our support. We still lack a sustainable energy policy.

Our solution? Earth Island will continue to create and support innovative answers to the complicated environmental challenges we face. We will also continue to rely on your partnership with us. Please join me in supporting one of the finest organizations on the planet.

Thank you.
