Environmental Investigation Agency
EIA works to achieve tangible changes in the global economy that make local and sustainable management of the world’s natural resources possible. This 30-year-old global organization with a hard-to-remember name focuses its endangered species work on the so-called charismatic megafauna, such as, elephants, rhinos, and whales. Like many groups, it produces reports about the rapacious destruction of ecosystems in order to create pressure for protection. But its unique role is in undercover investigations into criminal enterprises that trade in endangered species and illegally-harvested logs from threatened ecosystems. Some of its exploits sound like the stuff of Indiana Jones.

Center For Biological Diversity Inc
At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
