We may only hear about the big ones like the Gulf Oil Spill, but environmental crimes happen every day. There’s too much money to be made in exploiting the environment, whether it’s dumping toxic waste or trading in products from illegally harvested endangered species. Unfortunately, world governments aren’t nearly as effective at policing environmental criminals as they should be. That’s why Environmental Investigation Agency exists. They’re a Washington, DC based non-profit organization that “committed to promoting environmental conservation by investigating and exposing environmental crimes around the world, and then working to stop these crimes.” They’ve operating internationally since 1984, and they started in DC in 1989.
Some of the main focuses of the Environmental Investigation Agency are global climate, endangered species, and forests of the world. You can get a quick overview of the organization by watching this video:
Yes, they actually use undercover investigations to expose environmental criminals. By combining these tactics “with scientific documentation and effective representation at international conventions,” the EIA has “earned EIA a world-wide reputation for successful campaigning.” It’s like a secret agency for idealists. Pretty cool. If you want in, then you should check out the Environmental Investigation Agency’s Jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for someone in Communications and Social Media, and the position looks perfect for a new or recent grad.
