ABOUT EIA: CAMPAIGNING METHODS
Undercover methods unique among environmental organisations
EIA has pioneered the use of undercover investigations within the environmental movement. Using these investigations, coupled with in-depth background research and advocacy at the highest levels of government, EIA is able to present incontrovertible evidence of environmental crime and abuse, together with effective solutions and a powerful rationale for action.
EIA investigators gather unique film, photos and information from across the world, often at great personal risk. Working with governments, enforcement agencies and international conventions to mobilise political will for the protection of wildlife and the environment, EIA''s timely exposés have been extremely effective catalysts for change.
EIA then uses the skills it gains during its work around the world to empower others. This empowerment creates networks for skills sharing and information gathering in all the countries in which we operate. These networks also give support to the local people who work tirelessly on the ground in the day-to-day struggle to protect our natural resources. EIA is committed to leaving this lasting legacy.
"The reason for their success is not just the information gathered, it is the way they use it as a political lobbying tool. One of Britain''s most effective conservation groups"
