Protecting People and Planet

We believe that environmental security is not just about quality of life, it is a basic human right

We believe that environmental security is not just about quality of life, it is a basic human right

Every day vulnerable people are stripped of their rights, freedom and identity. They are victims of the environmental destruction being inflicted on our shared planet.

Driven by our core values of integrity, innovation and impact, EJF uses investigations and film to uncover these environmental and human rights abuses. We work for environmental justice, to protect the natural environment and the people and wildlife that depend upon it. Environmental security is a basic human right, and we go to the ends of the earth to defend people and planet.

Protecting marine ecosystems and livelihoods

EJF’s oceans campaign works to combat illegal and unsustainable fishing, stamp out human rights abuses driven by these illicit activities and protect the coastal communities and precious wildlife that depend on our oceans.

Demanding an end to deforestation

EJF’s forests campaign is intimately connected to our work combating the climate crisis and protecting wildlife. Forests contain a wealth of biodiversity – and stores of carbon which safeguard the Earth’s climate. Environmental security is a human right of future generations. We stand with them, and the indigenous communities who depend on forests.
