Philosophy and Approach
Our philosophy at the Institute is based on our knowledge that constant learning and the empowerment of leaders who care for the Earth and its inhabitants build effective constituencies and action for conservation. We are committed to broadening the base and commitment for environmental protection. From early sportsmen and bird watchers who sought to end the scourge of market hunting, to neighborhood activists who protect their communities against toxic chemical contamination, the effort to protect the health has always been based on people acting on behalf of what they care most deeply about — preserving the planet they love for generations to come.
