The World Resources Institute has written an informative article about tips on how to remain in compliance of the Lacey Act. The article discusses the Gibson Guitar raid, as well as other cases relating to the Lacey Act, and what you can do to make sure you are operating within the law. We urge you to read it, in order to stay informed on these issues.
Please take a moment to view the updated EIA Overview Video. This 3-minute video explains what the Environmental Investigation Agency does, and how our campaign successes have helped to positively impact the environment. Updated in this video is our Combined Federal Campaign number (if you are a federal worker, please consider donating to EIA, #26610!), as well as The New Yorker Magazine article featuring EIA.
EIA’s Forest Campaign Outreach Coordinator, Anne Middleton, has a guest column in The High Point Enterprise! This informative article details how worldwide illegal logging has declined as much as 25 percent over the past decade, with reductions as high as 50 percent to 75 percent in key producer countries. The report emphasized the role the U.S. Lacey Act plays in motivating importers of wood to ensure their product comes from viable sources. This is great news, since EIA played a key role in helping pass the Lacey Act!
The Switzer Network, a foundation that is dedicated and committed to supporting environmental leadership, recently did an interview with EIA’s Director of Forest Campaigns, Andrea Johnson. The video gives an insightful look at the work EIA does, and why and how we are working to fight illegal logging. Illegal logging decimates the world’s forests, releases massive carbon monoxide reserves, and destroys the lives of animals and communities.
