The ‪#‎RefugioOilSpill‬ is now estimated at over 105,000 gallons. Mauricio Gomez, the director of Carpinteria, ‪#‎CA‬ -based South Coast Habitat Restoration​, a project of Earth Island Institute​ reported this a.m. 5.21 that the crude has gone as far west as Tajiguas Ranch, and while the oil is all over the rocks, sand and intertidal....it hasn't gone up into the creeks.

“I’m always impressed with what young people can do before older people tell them that it is impossible,” said David Brower​ the prominent #environmentalist who spent the later years of his life mentoring youth.

In addition to leading with this great quote by Earth Island Institute​'s  founder, this terrific article by Alissa Hauser, shares the great news of her organization, The Pollination Project​'s partnering with Levi Strauss & Co.​ to "make seed grants that give a leg up to young heroes working on #environmental solutions all over the globe."  "Starting in Fall 2015, these grantees will be eligible for up to $5,000 in additional funding to expand and grow their projects, plus a scholarship to attend Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp​ (a project of Earth Island Institute​) in Summer 2016."

Please take a moment to read this message http://eii.convio.net/site/MessageViewer?em_id=7461.0 from Earth Island Institute's Earth Island Journal editor, Jason Mark about this week's major reporting coup when one of our contributing editors, Adam Federman, revealed that the ‪#‎FBI‬ violated its own rules while spying on ‪#‎KeystoneXL‬ pipeline opponents.
On Wednesday, Adam appeared on Democracy Now! to discuss the article, which was produced in partnership with The Guardian. The story was also picked up by several major US news outlets, including The New York Times.

Earth Island Journal is doing the kind of on-the-ground reporting that’s essential for giving citizens and policy makers the information they need to protect the ‪#‎environment‬.

Great News for #Dolphins and #Whales!

Read this update from Earth Island Institute​'s David Phillips about  International Marine Mammal Project​ and Save Japan Dolphins​ campaign efforts including the BREAKING NEWS ON THE #JAPAN #DOLPHIN FRONT and the latest on the lawsuit against #SeaWorld, and how you can help.

Dear ,. BREAKING NEWS ON THE JAPAN DOLPHIN FRONT. It was just announced that Japanese Aquariums will cease buying live captive dolphins caught in the cruel Taiji drive fishery. This a huge news in the effort to stop the Taiji dolphin killing and capture operation.
